P: Happy Halloween!

dangerHappy Halloween from Borneo!

We collected a gallery of the grossest and scariest images we’ve shot so far. In Borneo they make’em big and creepy. So we hope you get the shivers!

Max and I posted captions on the photos, so click on the photo for a closer look (if you dare…)

  1. Yikes! It is Halloween and I don’t think I will sleep well tonight! I am imagining bugs in my bed hiding under my pillow and crawling into my arm pits! Thank for the visual image of these MONSTER size bugs ready to nibble on ME!
