Really cool picture. Though I must admit, I really hate snakes, any kind. The main reason you'll never catch me in the woods, fields or farmyard without boots on. I never see them but I don't go out of my way to find them but my hubby never misses a chance to tell me about the big ones he finds when he's clearing stuff. Yeah, I really needed to know about the three foot garter snake that slid under the christmas tree by the farm house.

I would rather have a snake than a huge spider any day. When I was still in Australia I had a farm with big eucalyptus trees everywhere.The spiders live in the bark & in your house if it is nearby, gives me the heeby jeebys, some are 4 inches across & they travel in pairs.

Do you think Distorted has to deal with these? Camel spider average is about eight inches long.

Spiders should not be large enough to make a pie, and snakes should not eat kangaroos. I'm almost positive it's in the bible somewhere.

You're just scared because that kangaroo is bigger than you are!

There was a big rattler coiled up a few feet from my apartment door a few nights ago. I stepped out to prepare to take my dog out and I heard its rattler and it was coiled with its head and neck sticking way up in it's striking position. I slowly/quickly and careful went back inside and called the maintenance guy while I watched the snake through the doors peep hole. ha. Yeah, I'm chicken but I'm alive and the snake didn't bite me and most important it didn't get inside the apartment... those things can move fast. The maintenance guy used some long stick/arm with a clawgrip at one end to pick it up and put it into a bucket. We drove it to the end of a big empty dirt field and threw it out. They are territorial and will probably be back in a week.

Yes. Would you like me to send you one?

It's funny when they chase after ppl. They are really only chasing after their shadow to get in the shade. Funny as sh(t.

Crap, when I first saw the pic I thought it was a big ol rabbit. Oh ick.
And ick on the spiders too. Anything bigger than half an inch is a big flippen spider.
However, spiders don't wig me near as bad as those furry house centipedes. Talk about gross bugs.

As much as I hate bugs the House Centipede is the only one I pick up and stick outside. Those are my Homies they make spiders wet them self in their sleep. I just moved to Kentucky and I went to wash my face in the sink and when I looked down there was a HAIRY MONSTER in there! I had never seen one in Texas but here in Kentucky they seem to be all over the place. Don't have hardly any spiders inside and just a few outside that I have seen so I guess they do their job well. Arkansas/Texas darn spiders were always in the house and a problem outside also.

The ones we get look a bit fuzzier but yep and yleck. Saw something huge running along the back of the kitchen counter the other day, thought it was a mouse, nope, just one of those things. Yeah, the spiders are not bad in my house but these things got bad this year and they bite. They like the damp and they'll be happy to hatch inside your shower drains. We have a really old house and a creepy old basement, they love it.

I set off 9 flippen bug bombs today. No more spiders or creepy peeds. Of course, I am thinking no more braincells either as it took a bit to get them all set off.
