The Tarantula

Those who are arachnophobic, SKIP!

JLR's Old Magazine House at Ganeshgudi has a bank/tier upon which all the buildings stand. This bank is shored up with mud and stones, with many crevices in them. The crevices are inhabited by all manner of denizens....geckos, scorpions, snakes and worms...and the fearsome-looking


The Tarantulas we saw on our night walk all seemed to be wide awake.

I love watching these creatures, but would certainly like to maintain a respectful distance from them!
