In February 2008 I dragged Mr. Swiss to a reptile exhibition in the town of Biel, Switzerland, a 20 minute drive from where we live because there was a reptile exhibition. My only purpose was to take photos. They had everything from snakes to tortoise and of course lizards. In between there were also a few spiders, quite big ones. Unfortunately they were all in cages, which meant there was glass between my camera lens and the actual animal.
