Things that creep…

THIS is what greeted our youngest son in the shower at 5:45 on Tuesday morning.  Sometimes we forget we are living in the tropics, and then the temperature & humidity suddenly soar… and creatures like this one invade our house, and we remember.  Oh yes, we remember.

 Any arachnologists around who care to identify this guy (or gal?!) for us?  Is he as dangerous as he looks to our untrained eyes or is he just a big happy-go-lucky fellow traveler on this earth?

“God made the wild animals of the earth of every kind, and the cattle of every kind, and everything that creeps upon the ground of every kind.  And God saw that it was good” (Genesis 1:25).*

(*Do I dare say that I beg to differ with God?)
