    I couldn't make it 1/3 of the way through the first article and couldn't make it past the first sentence of the first paragraph of the second article.

    Media gives Tarantulas a bad reputation much like everything else.

    In the video she calls it an “anarchid.” Sad, I expected better from a Nat Geo video.

    What they meant by humans being wiped out is , if people were correctly educated about invertebrates and the media didn't scaremonger those who are simply unaware of how interesting they are then within a year a large majority of the population would have gotten into the hobby, built up a large collection. Then we would face a mass human extinction as no one could afford to feed their families. Its abit unfair to blame that on spiders thou :)
