And what do I encounter?
This isn't photoshopped to make the spider look bigger. This particular spider really does come that big.
Also? What you probably don't want to know? We probably have half a dozen or more of those in our house in Sri Lanka at any given point in time. If not more.
They're big enough that I can see them even when I don't have my glasses on.
They're big enough that I can hear them walking.
And even though they're not at all poisonous, I still scream like a wee little girl.
