Huge Tarantula Grabs Naked Danish Model

Posted by Richard Conniff on August 19, 2016

In the September issue of National Geographic, I write about how the fur industry has made a big comeback from the name-calling and blood-spattering of the 1990s.  One way they’ve done it is by appealing to fashion designers, who tend to like things that are more sensational, even bizarre, than practical.  This may be the weirdest: It’s a promo item I spotted in Denmark.


And in case you are wondering,no, that isn’t a real tarantula.

They don’t get that big, honest, and this one is made of mink.
