I SAW ONE!!! It sat in its web in a palm tree and did not move at all in 3 weeks.

(sorry)

Was only an inch long, nothing to write home about.

I wasn't joking, despite the date. Two other couples were leaving on our early boat transfer and therefore having their breakfast at the table next to us. The two women ran out of the restaurant and the two men jumped on the table. We just went straight to the boat. I don't know what became of "Boris".

We went to Meeduparhu in Feb and I have now christened this Spider Island ! They were as big as your hand and we saw 5 in the two weeks, and 1 of which was in our room !!

I am not good with Spiders ( understatement ! ) and would not go back to this Island just because of this. We went to Kani and didn't see any, and are going to Veligandu in Feb and have everything crossed that I don't meet anything bigger than a 5p piece.
