Had one of these in the garden once. Brute of a thing. I was getting ready to nail it with some gardening tools (although I confess I was none to keen on the idea) when suddenly I was surrounded by the local Thais telling me I was lucky to have one living here and I should leave it alone.

Not had one since which is a situation I am quite comfortable with.
