The ASE conference was excellent - not only did I sell out of books but I made a new friend. Her name is Tarantino. I asked her keeper (the Keeper of the Spiders) if it was true that tarantulas ate their mates after mating. He told me that it was just that they had poor eyesight and found it difficult to distinguish the mate from anything else that moves. Which is a problem I have all the time. He had a collection of other lovely little creatures too. More on this tomorrow.
