Seriously what the flip! That thing is flippin' HUGE.
The first time I was unfortunate to spot it, it was resting on the step to the garage. Like, FOUR INCHES FROM MY BARE FEET. I didn't notice it until my return trip to the main part of the house. I was too slow (and scared) to smash it, so it clicked-clacked it's way back under the water heater. Yes, the flippin' thing made an AUDIBLE noise when it scurried away!!!
Luckily (I guess?), it came out again the next night and my husband sprayed it first with poison to slow it down than smashed it. Normally I'm the one that smashes all the bugs and insects but I just couldn't with this one. Something about it being almost half the length of my foot kind of terrified me.
I know I JUST went to a museum to appreciate nature and science, but it's hard to appreciate it when it is in your house plotting your demise.
Thank you Jellybean!!!
