As I was sifting through our photo archives the other day, it dawned on me that in the course of our almost two decades in Brazil we have had many encounters of the six-legged or eight-legged kind. These encounters have ranged from the interesting to the downright terrifying. And many of them have been caught on camera.
So, as a public service, here are the best of our photos featuring insects and spiders. Enjoy!
Of course, no post about Brazilian bugs would be compete without spiders.
But there is one insect that even the tarantulas fear. In Portuguese it is called “cavalo do cão”, or “the Devil’s horse”, and it is aptly named. One day at camp we witnessed this epic battle.
