Could this Adorable Araneae (scientific name for Spiders..) make you less fearful of the real thing?
His name is Lucas, and the guy who created him hopes so!
Lucas the Spider was created to resemble the 'Jumping Spider' (Salticidae) and, actually, these types of spiders ARE kind of cute..
Joshua is a professional animator, and if there's anyone who could make a Spider more loveable, it's him, with a little voice help, of course.
That's Joshua's 5-year-old nephew 'talking' btw! He's the voice of Lucas.
Joshua set out to change people's minds about Spiders and from the comments on his YouTube videos, it seems to be working!
