So before I can blog about all of the amazing experiences we had I have to get something off my chest. You know when you find out something particularly nasty you can’t be the only who knows? You have to share the information or you just feel wrong? I know a lot more about childbirth than I really want to thanks to this flow of information – my friend finds out from her sister, she can’t be the only one who knows this awful, so she tells me. And somehow that makes it better. Well, this is one of those things. I know so now you have to know.
In this world there exists….
No really. A bug that is a cross between a scorpion and a spider. It’s like a giant spider but with pinchers like a scorpion:
Because neither of those creatures were completely creepy enough on their own. Oh and it also has ridiculously long tentacles, just for fun.
Want a side view? (probably not but I'm going to share anyways):
I think the fact that I wanted to spend time in the Amazon rainforest at all shows that I have a pretty high tolerance for creepy-crawly things. But a scorpion-spider?! I mean come on. Clearly freaking out and quadruple checking that the mosquito net over our bed was impenetrable was an appropriate response. Clearly.
Ok I feel a little better now.
