Attack of the 40 ft Woman

And here's the reason that she's not as popular as she should be. We were at the Butterfly Pavilion when I spotted her. I wanted to show Rowan and a woman overheard the call, "Come check this out!" and came too.

I could feel the floorboards vibrate as she shuddered and scuttled away. Then I breathed on the spider and it scuttled away too. When the spider left there was an interesting shuuuucka-shuuuucka-shuuuuuucka sound, but no floorboard shacking.

The Pavilion uses them to control the cockroaches. Carnivorous pitcher plants take care of a few too. Posted by Picasa
