In August and September, male tarantulas (Aphonopelma sp.) can be seen crawling around Zion Canyon from dusk until dawn in search of a mate. If you do see a tarantula cross your path, wish it luck and let it continue on it's way; they are not aggressive and seldom bite or bother humans unless provoked. NPS Photo/Christopher Gezon
