The recent posts about snakes and spiders have me wondering what types of little creatures I might be meeting when we stay at the Kiahuna Plantation in November. Spiders? Geckos? I live in the desert in so CA on a dry bed creek. we have lizards, snakes, spiders, rats, millipedes, slugs, coyotes and more. I am not fond of any of them. I know what to expect though in terms of when I might see them and how to avoid them. Just want to be prepared. I never leave my door open for prolonged periods of tine as we found a snake once near the front door and a couple of lizards in the house. Is it recommended to try to keep your doors closed there too? Thanks!
