Wanna get up close to a new world of creepy crawlies? Then join me for one of my outings, lectures or field trips. Allow me to open your eyes to the amazing world of scorpions and other creepy crawlies. Check out my Events section to find out what is happening where and when. You'll also be supporting various nature conservation organisations.
Some articles and blobs of text that I have lying around. Not always about Spiders or Scorpions but well worth reading none the less.

In the biting winters’ chill I remember thinking of my electric blanket waiting for me at home, the hot cup of coffee that I would make before going to bed, the book I read and the soft pillows that I have.
