I'm terrified of spiders but oddly enjoying looking at them, cool collection and very scary looking specimens.

It's fantastic that you enjoy looking at them.

I'm kind of the same - I lurk a lot in the invert section, but don't really expect ever to own any of them (though I have had various stick insects and mantids in the past). Am absolutely fascinated though, especially by the Ts.

I had a mate who was absolutely petrified of spiders. But she's now got a tarantula of her own.

I find Centipedes absolutely fascinating, but I must admit they kind of scare the living daylights out of me, lol.

They're honestly brilliant. Particulary the bigger ones.

They look like they're a lot of fun to keep, as in ferocious eaters and co.
I think I'll just stick to admiring them from afar for now, lol.

What is it you like about them, Basin79? I'd be interested to hear.

Mighty impressive looking animal.

Saw an Attenborough documentary once with footage of a centipede eating a bat on the roof of a cave - would it have been a similar species to yours? Sorry, totally ignorant - if that's the equivalent of asking if the anaconda I saw on TV is like your scrub python then I apologise!
