Eight-year-old Hollie Greenhalgh loves spiders so much that she shares her bedroom with more than 50 of them.

The budding conservationist says she began her love affair with the eight-legged creatures at just three when she held a tarantula for the first time at a museum. 

"They're just fascinating... they're so cute and adorable," Greenhalgh said in an interview about why she loves creepy-crawly insects. 

Greenhalgh, who shares her spidy adventures via her YouTube channel Princess Sophie Pink, also keeps two snakes and a scorpion as well as enclosures full of millipedes, grasshoppers, and cockroaches.
