In a scene straight out of James Bond, a tarantula wandered into my shower in Guyana.
As I was unarmed my sole defense was a wet towel. The Tarantula escaped out of a hole in the cinder block wall. Now Tarantulas do not have tounges but I think the chap was laughing at me as it fled.
I did enjoy seeing kingfishers, hummingbirds, lizards and huge frogs in Guyana. There was a mongoose and I made sure Sidney the small cat was safe at home.
