    Including the Laos Giant Cave Huntsman (biggest spider in the world), the Thai tarantula offered as breakfast and the Cambodian spiders of Spiderville!

    Couldn't open the link Basho.

    Why am I not surprised someone here is eating the spiders though? Is there anything these people won't eat?

    Ok, that wasn't the most soothing of reads! If there's one thing I'm in any way anxious about when it comes to travelling it's not going alone, or being in an unfamiliar place, or tropical diseases...it's spiders!

    Well written however =)
