She doesn't do a whole lot. She just sits in my hands. And if I move my hands and disturb her, she'll slowly try to move away, such that I have to keep her treadmilling in my hands. I'm not afraid of spiders outside. If I see one, it's no biggie. I am afraid of them in my house, or if one happens to get on me. She is not an animal that I would have wanted to handle out of my own curiosity. One of the keepers is handling her to get her accustomed to it so that she could be used as an educational animal. So when she asked me if I would like to try holding her, I wasn't going to admit to being afraid and say no, I had to suck it up. But after a minute of holding her and just seeing how mellow she is and how she makes no effort to bite (and she doesn't move fast and doesn't jump or anything surprising like that), the fear passes. I remember in my previous internship I was pretty much told to assist with moving a hellbender immediately after being shown a scar one of the keepers had from being bitten by it, and that was a similar experience of acting like I was not intimidated and just going for it. And pretty soon I just thought the hellbenders were so cool.
