    St. John, to be particular. The place we were staying at had outdoor showers, and I found him in one within 5 mins of arriving and checking everything out. Awesome way to start the trip...for me, at least! Rest of the family was freaked out and didn't appreciate him. Their loss. I caught him in a cup and let him back into the wilderness.

    I...think he's a Holothele sp. possibly shoemakeri? Let me know if you have any better ideas!

    Wow! That's awesome! I remember when I traveled to Rarotonga in the Cook Islands with my family, I was told there were no spiders on the island. As you can imagine, I was terribly disappointed; however, on our way to our rental house, I noticed a small jumping spider on the outside of our car....it only got better from there on out :D.

    Thanks for sharing,
