Internet Reacts To Famous Snake Wrangler Using Huge Tarantula To Confront His Fear of Spiders

"You play with pythons, but fear a spider?" asks a viewer of the video.

One of the Internet's most fearless and notorious snake and other reptile wranglers apparently has one thing he is still scared of: spiders. So, in order to confront this fear, he gets hold of a gigantic tarantula and films himself handling its unboxing all by himself. This video unveils the dramatic moment.


Brian Barczyk posts videos on TikTok as @brianbarczyk, has a popular YouTube channel and has appeared on television with snakes, lizards and all sorts of reptiles. He also runs a zoo called The Reptarium in Utica, Michigan, that houses "a plethora of reptiles and other animal ambassadors in naturalistic enclosures." But apparently large spiders are not exactly his cup of tea.

"Bro, you play with pythons, but fear a spider?" asks commenter @spec_tacular9. To which Barczyk replies, "You come grab it."

"I can't even hold a dead roach," admits @spec_tacular9.

"I was ready for a jump scare," writes tum.hi.hoe.

"Even the camera man backed up," observes @kainenbear.

Video viewer @plantpotjohn makes this note: "When an Australian is scared that means it's bad," he suggests.

"Did you Amazon Prime a spider?" asks @wyfrywab. User @yduejdhjdne answers, "It's normal for small animals like spiders to come in boxes."

"The container had holes," clarifies @bellaapancake.

"Your videos are cool," writes @kevincool40. "I wish I could come to see them."

"Come visit the Reptarium whenever you're around," replies Barczyk.
