A mother overcame her fear of spiders by caring for 22 tarantulas.
Lyn-Ann Price, 47, who had been afraid of them since childhood, finally decided to confront their terror head-on.
She educated herself about spiders by watching online videos about them during lockdown.
Lyn-Ann from Pontardawe near Swansea then decided to get one as a pet.
She liked them so much that her collection grew to 22.
She said: “My daughter Amber was showing signs of arachnophobia.
“I didn’t want her to live in fear like I do.
“The more I learned about spiders, the less scared I became.
“Now I have 22 tarantulas of different shapes and sizes.
” I adore her.
“It never occurred to me how many different species there are.
“I find it relaxing to take care of her.”
