So on our visit to our friends in Scotland, we stopped by the Dobbie Butterfly Centre, near Edinburgh. It turned out to be better than we thought, with all kinds of critters and flowers. Ian loved it, and enjoyed seeing some of the the beautiful creatures on view.

The biggest Boa any of us had ever seen--more than a foot in diameter at its widest point.
None of us took this guy up on his offer to hold the spider.
