Crea­tures great and crawly

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Hun­dreds en­joyed an ex­hi­bi­tion of ex­otic spi­ders, scor­pi­ons and creepy crawlies at the Ash­ford In­ter­na­tional Ho­tel.

The South East Arach­nid Show staged by the In­victa Arach­nid Club at the venue on Sun­day was cer­tainly not for the faint-hearted.

Vis­i­tors could in­spect all the night­mar­ish crea­tures which were also up for sale. Pun­ters took away gi­ant cen­tipedes, king ba­boon spi­ders, stick in­sects, and bird eat­ing spi­ders.
