COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKCO) - Male tarantulas are on an incredible journey right now in southern Colorado.
CSU-Pueblo Biology professor Moussa Diawara says these males have waited up to a decade for their one and only journey outside.
Moussa says, "From late August to early October is the time when the males are out seeking the females to mate. They die a few weeks after they mate, for reasons we don't understand exactly."
