Snake Bites
#31
I did see a couple of Rain Spiders in South Africa (distant widow relatives). Never saw any tarantulas there, but that's not surprising since they are very secretive and only emerge at night. Spent some time turning rocks in a field and found a half dozen or so scorpions, most likely Parabuthus species--very very dangerous. I soooo wanted to take one home with me but couldn't figure out a way to smuggle it on the airplane with me. Wink

Aw hell Lenny. You could have easily smuggled a little bug somehow. You weren't trying hard at all!

I got away with a live monkey once but that was back in the day

This thread caused me to remember a scene from Woody Allen's "Bananas".
