Photo: Tarantula on Indiana TV
Indiana residents we are sure have never witnessed anything like this before on their news broadcast. What from fleeing anchors to screeches of fear to a large black tarantula holding court on the news. It all happened when the news was hosting an animal expert and the smart-ass anchor Ray Cortopassi decided to play around with his fellow cast mates not realizing the extent of their spider fear. Apparently when weatherman Jim O’Brien was presenting the weather you could hear his screeching and alarm when the spider came to him.
When the broadcast goes live you see him fleeing the studio and the weather broadcast stops. Fellow anchor Angela Ganote takes over the weather until her ass co-anchor Cortopassi brings her the tarantula. She then proceeds to flee the studio also. All the while the camera crew continues to film all the craziness.
We are not sure if this is the famous Mexican tarantula from its black and white strips it is probably the Costa Rican Zebra tarantula. Fear not amigos in Indiana these creatures from Latin America are not deadly just very scary looking. Watch the show its unbelievable.
