Maria Menounos Holds Black Widows, Tarantulas, Scorpions And More!!

| Filed under: Maria MenounosScary!SpiderScorpion

Maria Menounos got to hold containers of Black Widows, Tarantulas, Scorpions and more at The Grove.

Whatever you do, Maria Menounos, be very, verrrrrry careful…

Do NOT drop those containers!!

Maria was out and about, hanging at The Grove in sunny El Lay, when she got the chance to hold several containers full of some seriously terrifying creatures.

She posted a pic (above) to instagram and wrote:

"Don't mess with me..from @epicthemovie Black widow spider, Wolf spider, Emperor Scorpions Galliath bird eating tarantula & Arizona blonde tarantula"

Jeez!! If she dropped those and was bit by just one of those guys, she'd be in a world of hurt.

We guess there's a kind of strength you get from holding containers full of certain doom.

Maria is a master of death! She is the queen spider!! LOLz!

Lookin' good there, Maria! You so brave!!
