Heh, I think just being in the same room as a spider that big would kill me.

The tour guide used a towel to scoop it up and bring it back, then admitted to me privately later that his face was killing him–because he’d inadvertently used the same towel to wipe off his sweat. But on the positive side, I hear they’re kind of friendly.
