Hi AG,
How did you persuade the spider to leave the shower? :big_eyes:
Although spiders are fascinating, I always have to keep my distance :shock:
And I am glad I have never met one of those HUGE guys :big_eyes:

The tiger snake is so beautiful! :D

And the picture of the baboon is very funny :lol:
