My son has lived in Egypt for the last three years and he was always afraid of camel spiders coming under the door. When he saw one he said he didn't have to worry about that because they were so big they'd never fit under a door. He's in Borneo now. Goodness only knows what he'll find there.

I have just heard on the news a BIG spider has been found ( I did not hear where it was) With its legs extended it was the size of a human face. I am not usually scared of spiders, but coming across one this size in the bath would freak me out. :-0 :-0 :-0 :-0 :-0 :-0 :-0 :-0
