I can understand the big fuss. When I was a child and young adult I was deadly afraid of large cockroaches that came out of the grass and fields on our farm. I would scream, holler and jump up on the couch. Do not worry, my grandmother was deadly. Mama hated them and she always clean sweep her house of roaches. I never had to sleep or each with any.

Wow that was some sort of battle girl.

I really don't blame her, or him, or whoever it was.   I'll never forget one summer when I was being camp counsellor for a cabin of eleven girls and me in six bunkbeds.  I was the adult for eleven girls who found a Missouri tarantula coming out from under one of the beds.  They all went ballistic so it was up to me to do something.  I grabbed the broom and whacked it hard as I could.  The whack did not phase it.  I whacked it again and again and again with all the girls screaming and fainting.  After eight of my best whacks, it lay down and was quivering and I swept it out the door.  Then I fainted on my bed.

I think you're right - it was Kabu! But they just didn't want to precipitate a big diplomatic flare-up between a couple of friendly nations...

I think the silent stealthy approach is better on such an occasion. Not that I have a grudge against small spiders. I expect Kabu thinks she is a Aussie when she is down there. Funny though.
