Bugs! That had been one thing we had been dreading before going on orientation. All manner of creepy-crawlies to come face-to-face with.

It started off pretty tame ... just an average beetle in the room.

 Then we had to run the gauntlet of this fella to get to the bathrooms.

We tried not to think about where the rest of his family might be!
Back in the room, geckos and small lizards were fairly common, but just outside we found this little guy.

Baby dragon?!
 Oddly enough, in the village the supply of wildlife was no less! We often had small tree frogs come and sit on Reuben's bath.

Their other favourite trick was to come inside our house and be on the ceiling above Trudie (always her for some reason). Then every now and again they'd fall off and make her jump out of her skin!

The greener-coloured tree frog also liked to come and visit...

but I wasn't quick enough with the camera to capture it.

  1. The spider is one nasty looking critter. Though you'll want to be very careful regarding mosquitoes. Malaria is a real risk in PNG. Hopefully you were able to get your vaccinations. Also if you don't already have them, get a bunch of mosquito nets. The nets might actually help keep out the other critters as well. Have a fun safe trip!
