An appeal has been made to find out how the three tarantulas ended up abandoned outside a home in Blaenavon near Pontypool.

The spiders had apparently been left outside a boarded-up property for nearly three days before being reported to the RSPCA.

The tarantulas need a stable warm temperature to survive, relying on their environment to maintain their body temperature and water.

The RSPCA says anyone with information on how the tarantulas came to be in the garden and how one sof the spiders died should call the RSPCA’s Appeal Line on 0300 123 8018.
