THIS HAS ALMOST NOTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH YOUR EXPEDITION!

Sorry to disappoint you.

I just wanted to add that I wish I could come along to carry your collecting gear and point out little round holes in the dirt for you! You and I have both got to be among the luckiest guys on the planet. You're in South Africa looking for tarantulas, and I'm in south Texas (You guessed it!) looking for tarantulas.

By New Years I'll be in the Lower Rio Grand Valley near a city called McAllen within spitting distance of the Mexican border. There are Aphonopelma anax

and A. moderatum

in the area. A little farther north we find the classic A. hentzi.

This year I'm on a quest for an unusually colored widow that has been variously called a color form of Latrodectus mactans and a color form of L. hesperus. But, there's a pretty good possibility that it's an entirely new species.

I have a suggestion. We're two people literally on opposite sides of the planet, engaged in the same pursuit. Why don't we try to keep up a dialog on this thread, comparing and contrasting our experiences and the results of our forays? We can post photos of the creatures we run into and their habitats.

AND ALL THE REST OF YOU CAN DROOL ALL OVER
YOUR TOUCH SCREENS AND KEYBOARDS!

:happy: :tongue:
