Animals can lick their own asses,
So when they smile at you
It's always with a shiat eating grin

Oh hi, I'll just be over here taking care of my babies. You don't mind, I hope. It's awfully hot outside and we're just hoping to get some rest in this cool corner. I don't mind the light, but if you turned it off, I'd be super appreciative. Again, thanks for letting us stay. We'll be out of your hair in just a couple days (or in your hair, ha ha! just kidding!). Anyway, you're awesome and I really appreciate the place to hang out.

You probably are crazy.

And I found it all pretty fascinating as well.  I mean, if I found a huge spider in my house with 1,000 babies around it I'd run for the can of Raid but nothing in TFA was scary in any way.

The hunter centipede on the toothbrush just means you have tasty bugs in your bathroom.  They are nature's pest control, by eating all the ants, termites, mites, ticks, etc. in all the hard to reach places of your house.

Probably not a CSB: I live damn close to Reptile Gardens in South Dakota. It was a family destination every Summer, and I've always loved reptiles. It's probably been 8 years since we've gone, people don't come back as often, and I wouldn't go by myself. But if you ever are in the area, and you haven't been, go there. It's one of the most amazing collections of reptiles and vultures on the planet. And I've known people that work there, they go through great pains to make sure the animals are taken care of. They're probably better taken care of than the empolyees.

Anyway, they have a Komodo Dragon. At least I hope they still have it, it's been a few years. But every time we went, I would end up stopping at the Komodo Dragon enclosure, and everyone else would move on. And I have to say, it's one of the most beautiful animals I've ever seen. It has dark brown eyes like a puppy, slender, quick body, even though it looks like it just waddles around, they can move, and it's mouth turns up at the end like it's smiling.

It always came up to the glass to look at me, so it seems like it's an extremely curious reptile. It just always struck me that they responded differently from any other reptile there, like there's an intelligence and curiosity that you don't get with crocodilians. And it wasn't the response from some other reptiles where they headbob and expose their dewlap. Just seemed like curiosity... probably trying to figure out how to eat me.

Anyway, I always thought it was the cutest thing in the place, after the baby alligators and crocodiles. My family members never saw the cuteness in it.

They are really smart.  I saw once saw a show where a guy (maybe a gal?) had trained one up like a dog.  It would fetch, do other simple tasks, and liked to cuddle.

Alright, last thing about the Komodo Dragon. They seem to have eyebrows, which made me think of puppy dog eyes. George Carlin said dogs are better manipulators than cats because they have eyebrows. Komodo Dragon's have eyebrows, or at least little ridges that pass for eyebrows. I can't think of another reptile with that, but I'm sure I could be proved wrong. Anyway:

Eagles are really big birds. I didn't realize how big until I drove past a golden eagle once plucking at some roadkill on an exit ramp. Holy crap that was a big damn bird!

Not venomous exactly.

The bacteria that grows in their mouths is extremely nasty, and will basically instantly start an infection that can disable a fairly large animal with 12 hours or so.

Meanwhile, mr. Lizard is slowly tracking your ass, waiting for you to get too weak to keep moving and drop.  Then they have lunch.

There is a toxic anti-coagulant venom.  So combo effect?
