SnapShots: ginormous bugs of Dokki

They don't look that big in these photos, but man they were huge! Big enough to make a 6 foot guy jump from his seat!

Cockroach at the stella bar . 
did you know? 8. Cockroaches are fast!
Anyone who shares their home with cockroaches will tell you how fast they scurry for cover when you flip on the light switch. But when I say they're fast, I mean measurably fast. Cockroaches detect approaching threats by sensing changes in air currents. The fastest start time clocked by a cockroach was just 8.2 milliseconds after it sensed a puff of air on its rear end. Once all six legs are in motion, a cockroach can sprint at speeds of 80 centimeters per second. And they're elusive, too, with the ability to turn on a dime while in full stride.
Tarantula in Basha Sabry street. It wouldn't budge even though I kicked a few pebbles towards it.
