LAOS

Green Tree Boa - This beautiful green snake is about a metre long and was seen on a tree branch overlooking a river in Laos

 

 

 

 

 Big snake in a plastic sack ( Python ? )

This was for sale in the local shop ( Laos, 280,000 Kip ) it weighs 14 Kgs and the shopkeeper said it does not bite and is easy to handle (!)

 

- but she made no attempt to wake it up and remove the bag so I could get a better photo !

 

 

 

 

 

This amazing spider keeps its legs together in pairs and does zig-zag webs ( Laos )

 

 

This bulky spider lived in the downstairs toilet - it's nearly as big as the housebrick !

( Laos )

 

 

This medium-sized spider was just outside the toilet

 

 

This spider has really long legs - for a few days there were hundreds of them outside the window (!) and then they all departed ( Laos )

 

 

Baby spider exo-skeleton - found in my room ! Don't know how many times they shed their skin, but they get much bigger than this. Scale is centimetres - not inches ! ( Laos )

 

 

A BIG hairy moth came into the workshop ( Laos )

 

 

Here it is next to my hand to give an idea of its size
