For better or for worse, the poet Curtney Chinnery, aka the “Ghost From Jost” is back on St. John.
The Ghost and I made this video yesterday demonstrating how to catch a tarantula. Apparently there are nearly 1,000 species of tarantula and not all are as deadly as commonly imagines. I have heard that these tarantulas, or ground spiders as they are sometimes called on St. John, can inflict a painful bite, but one which is rarely fatal.
Moreover, our St. John tarantulas are not aggressive at all and are fearful of humans.
Stay tunes for more adventures of the “Ghost From Jost…”
