a giant tarantula

Suzy and Veronica were sent to bed. this conversation emerged from their room....

Suzy: Veronica put away your coat like mom said.
Suzy: VERONICA! you have to hang it up in the closet. Don't just throw it on the floor. A giant tarantula could move in and we wouldn't even know it  if our floor gets that messy again!

Veronica: what's a tarantula?

Suzy: It's a giant spider. a giant giant spider.

I'm not sure who gave them this idea, but it seems to be working. So I'm not going to be in any rush to correct them about the normal habitat range of tarantulas.
