    eek! I can't say I was too re-assured by the "expert" who said something to the effect of 'oh yes, they're nothing like as big as that in reality – bodies no more than 5–10 cm.' [shivers]. 10 cm is much to big for any insect to be.

    Thank god we don't have anything like that here.

    Well if that scares you, never ever have a shower in the Kalahari Desert. On entering the shower cubicle at Nata late at night Emma was rather surprised to find a foot long stick insect. Worse still, in response the insect made a loud clicking noise, as if to say "do you mind, this cubicle is occupied".

  3. eeeeew…..thanks for that. I'll have nightmares for a few nights. My husband just looked them up on the net (solifugids) and it says the females sneak up on dogs and people and cut off samples of hair to make nests. GREAT.
