*Shivers* just watching that. I don't mind the size so much, (although you wouldn't catch me holding it in my hand). It's got too many legs for my liking, reminds me of a spider

Scary looking creatures. Feisty little buggers as well. Lot of them in my garden. Have to be careful before putting hands in dark places.
