Gold Skulltula Locations and Prizes [Skll]

There's a family in Kakariko Village who is cursed by the Gold Skulltulas.
Killing a certain number of Gold Skulltulas and collecting the tokens (spirits) 
they leave behind will cure the curse of a family member.  Go to the cured 
family member and receive a prize for your hard work.  There are 100 Gold 
Skulltulas in the game, and getting them all cures the final member of the 
family and gives you a special prize. (which sucks, but the other prizes are 
fairly nice) First I'll list the prizes you get, and then I'll list the Gold 
Skulltulas you can find, area-by-area.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Family Member Prizes

Killing a certain number of Skulltulas will cure a family member.  Just make
sure that after you kill a Gold Skulltula, that you collect the token (spirit) 
it leaves behind, otherwise it won't count.

10 Skulltulas: Gives you the Adult's Wallet, which lets you carry 200 Rupees,
as opposed to the previous 100 that you could carry.

20 Skulltulas: Gives you the Stone of Agony.  If you have the Rumble Pak, it
will rumble whenever there is something secret nearby. (Such as Secret caves.)

30 Skulltulas: Gives you the Giant's Wallet, which lets you carry 500 Rupees.
This is the final Rupee upgrade.

40 Skulltulas: Gives you 10 Bombchus, and you probably have them already,
leaving this prize to be almost useless.

50 Skulltulas: Gives you a Piece of Heart, and is a very good prize.

100 Skulltulas: Gives you a Huge Rupee, which is worth 200 Rupees.  Not a good
prize compared to the others you can get, but oh well.
