Residents of Los Angeles need to get ready, because it's tarantula mating season in California. Living in California has its perks, but tarantula mating season is definitely one of the biggest drawbacks to living in the area.

Hikers in the nearby Santa Monica Mountains are likely to encounter more than their fair share of wild tarantulas on the hunt for mates over the next few weeks.

While they might look terrifying, tarantulas actually pose very little threat to humans. That being said, park rangers are encouraging hikers to leave any critters they see in peace.

During mating season, male tarantulas store their semen in their pedipalps. They then transfer that semen to receptive females. Most of the time, this goes off without a hitch. Other times...well, things end badly for the male.
