I am talking a REAL big ass spider, which has newly taken up residence in the parking lot of the former Silva Lanes, just off Rufina, outside what will soon be Meow Wolf's amazing art space.
That's my friend and euro-minion Jo standing underneath TaranTula, for a sense of scale.
The Silva Lanes/ Meow Wolf complex is still an active construction site, so you can't get too close... but the spider, and her friend the giant robot, are visible from the street, so do swing by and take a look if you're in the neighborhood.
Construction continues apace. No opening date set yet, but Meow Wolf is now talking February. I had the pleasure of taking some of the producers from THE EXPANSE through the exhibit last week, and they were as blown away as I am every time I see the site anew. Whenever it finally opens, it ought to be amazing.

Meantime, 'ware the iron spider.
