Well, there are a whole bunch of OTHER places I am never going. Spiders are good, people told me when I was little, but I don't think I want to be around one that eats things with bones. I was always more scared of bats as a child, but maybe I was a bit naive. Next they'll find a fossilized one as big as horse. I'm staying inside from now on! And maybe duct taping all my windows too. Just to be sure... :^)

Can I just say yikes! I have been up close and personal with one too many very LARGE spiders and this was close enough to feel like the real thing. Thanks Giana. Not like the poor bats don't already have enough problems here in America.
