Which is worse, sweating or being bit?
Anyway, here are some of the creatures we've encountered:
spiders (!) .. one day in the Guest Lodge Mary glanced to where I was sitting, and told me "Move, as quick as you can!" I did, and looking back we saw a gargantuan spider on the curtain, about 1' from where my head was. Did not stay long enough for a photo. Instead, we found the manager. He sprayed it with Raid, told us it was "one of the bad ones, that sting from the abdomen with venom". The Raid didn't phase it. He shook the curtain and flicked it onto the floor. We though he was going to just kill it (isn't that what the Raid was supposed to do?) No! Instead he just shooed it with his foot out the room, down the hall, around the corner, through the lobby and out the front door!
But, last night Mary came screaming into our room, well, not screaming but a little alarmed. There was a 6" lizard in her bedroom. Tom rescued her by shooing it, with a plastic hanger, out the window, and outside the screen. Mary opted to sleep in a different bedroom last night. Sorry, no photo of that one, but I have a feeling it isn't a lost opportunity.
Finally, our house backs onto the golf course driving range. Don't imagine that we look onto it. No, the back fence has concertina wire, foliage, a sort of alleyway, more dense foliage for the golf course's fence with concertina wire. What it does offer is monkeys, lots of monkeys.
These are some pictures of only a few we encountered while at the guest lodge. When we asked what kind they were, we received a blank, "are you stupid" stare, and were informed that they were just monkeys! If you look close you'll see juveniles and moms with babies. No males would stay still long enough for their photo op!
