Anna 'nother spider!

After my last 'spider' blog I got several messages saying how ugly the poor little incy wincy was!

Actually he was quite a beautiful one - but reading up on Baboon Spiders later, I realised that I had, in fact, made a mistake with the age. They live to anything up to 25 years old - so the one I had walking around on the Reception Desk must have been about 16.

Here is a truly pretty one - he (or probably 'she'?) has been walking around my own desk at the back of Reception - attracted no doubt by the bugs that fly around my light at night.

Zimbabwe is kind of special with all the critters we have here. You just have to look for them!
