“Is there anyone here with us? Are you trying to get our attention?” I asked.
At that moment, I felt the sensation of a large furry animal scurrying over my sandal-clad skin.
“OH MY GOD! There’s something by my feet!” I screamed.
I didn’t have a flashlight to see the 50 pound tarantula that must have been attacking me in the dark. My companions rushed to my aid, but we could find nothing. No giant spider, no rabid squirrel, no rat. But this was no small rodent or bug, this was something large, with weight and mass to it, not a tiny mouse tickling my toes.
