On the way to the men’s room last night, Kenny Ward, a Houston-area attorney originally from Lincoln, Neb., had a little competition on the path.

“I thought it was cool,” he said of the furry eight-legged friend about the size of an adult hand.

Now his experience was complete.

He got out his iPhone and snapped a photo.

Then, the paparazzi came: other volunteers with their cameras.

Suffice it to say, the love of All Gods Creatures was not shared by the rest of the group, including some of Ward’s tentmates who decided now was a good time to use their mosquito nets.

For the record – and knock on wood – nary a mosquito has been spotted.

“They are now tarantula nets,” Ward said.
