SA certainly has its share of armadillos, rattlesnakes and scorpions.
One of the last category climbed out of a motor that I found. I was running it on my patio as a test to see if it would catch fire.
I had the feeling he/she was pretty perturbed, after putting up with 15 minutes of noise & vibration.
My two-year-old got a good look at that beast, and a lecture on animal life, but she tells me now she doesn't remember any of that.
She's a bit older, now, and so am I - but that motor is still in my basement, attached to a grinding wheel.
