"Another intereseting thing which EVERYONE will want to know about :) Thursday night we came into the pad for dinner. I started boiling water for Mac and Cheese...when Elder Major starts running away and saying HUGE SPIDER! I've seen a few spiders here that were big but not scary so I wasn't too scared...Elder Major is a pyro and grabbed his lighter and spray and went to torch it. So, I looked at where he was pointing and there was this HUGE FREAKIN MONGOOSE of a spider that was chilling by the fridge. He missed it when he went to torch it so we had to pull the fridge out and fish it out. Now when I say HUGE, I mean...HUUUUUGE!! It was SICK! haha. So anyways, she was living literally UNDER our fridge and we fished her out, SHE came out from under and ran after me so I screamed like a little girl. We cornered her and torched her. She was a monster to torch though, she kept moving after she was torched for a long time. So we finally got her dead, I took a few videos of it. Man it was HUGE. We later came to find out...it was a "Mama Cane" spider as the locals call it, but in mainland terms it is a WOLF SPIDER. It was disgusting!!!! I got plenty of pics. If you wanna know how big she was, put your hand stretched out,...ya about that big. Maybe the size of dad's.
