    As the larvae is usually bigger than the "adult",it must be huge.

    Sy sussie het so week terug oor my skoene gehardloop terwyl ek koffie gemaak het by die werk.
    Die een was by die hydraulic test bench.

    Saw one at Marloth Park in December. Just the one I saw was about the size of your Leatherman!

    Needless to say, my wife got a big skrik when it ran across the floor.

    Not a longhorn beetle. If you push down on that bug it will make a strange squeeky noise. Don't really know what they are called, but I've seen them around.

    Ja, not a spider but just as long as you don't call them ants/termites as some people do.
