A few days back, Callan posted some really awesome pictures of some of his local arthopods. I thought I'd share some crawlies as well, although mine aren't local. These are pictures from a muggy mountain hike on Taboga, an island on the pacific side of Panama.
I didn't put any scale bar on this one, but this damn caterpillar was around seven inches long, and started waggling it's head around when we got close to get a picture.
This was a pissed off tarantula, who was busy hunting, and didn't want his picture taken. About as big as my hand (my hands are 38 inches across).
