These guys are BIG - this one was almost the size of my hand! They are perfectly harmless to humans, but are daunting because of their large size. They also put on quite a show when provoked. They raise their front legs and show their fangs! Unfortunately this results in them being killed, either by insecticide or SQUASH!
Needless to say we didn't wait for this guy to leave of his own accord! The Marie Claire magazine came in pretty handy!
