Months after she brings this giant arachnid home, a crisis develops that throws her life into chaos. Annie unexpectedly lays eggs. Tarantula experts state that the eggs will surely not survive to develop under the hand of a novice. Nevertheless, because a minute possibility exists to the contrary, she sets out to prepare.
