This is what nightmares are made of!
    #2577322 - 04/19/04 12:00 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)




Camel spiders are one of the fastest running arthropods. Although they have four pairs of legs, they run using only three pairs. The first pair of legs or pedipalpi are held up in front of them and used in a similar manner to the antennae of insects. They have very long, silky setae and are constantly moving in order to locate and pick-up prey. Despite their fearsome appearance and their strong bite, solifugids are unlikely to harm humans. In the past they were considered venomous and extremely dangerous but it is now thought that the only risk of injury resulting from them is caused by shock or infection following a bite. There is no evidence of venom in any part of their body.

Camel spiders are nocturnal predators of other arthropods including scorpions and are voracious feeders. Some species kill and feed on lizards and it is speculated that others kill mice and birds. They rely solely on their speed and stealth to catch their prey. In desert areas they are often attracted to lights at night in search of food and their appearance can cause alarm if they enter tents. It is rare to see them during the winter months in UAE and they are thought to hide or hibernate during cold periods.

I never knew such a thing existed, I have no problem with spiders untill the fucking things start to get bigger than my hand, that thing would probably call for my M-16 if I was over there.

i wonder how many times you have to smack it with your shoe before it stops twitching?

also, once you've squashed it how small does it get... you know.. how spider "wad up" when they die.

for some reason that always scares the fuck out of me when spiders curl up like that... anyway that pic has been linked before, I wonder if this is the real text that goes with the image? We have those fucking wolf spiders up here..... fuckers always hide in our wood pile so I go to grab a couple logs and look down and there's a 5-inch long spider crawling up my arm. Thank god they're not poisonous. Jesus fuck.

WE FOUND THEM!! <The biological weapons of mass destruction>

I found a nice little video of one of them clearing out sand like a bulldozer to make a nest, and attacking and devouring a scorpian:

damn things run like 40mph and if they attack you while you sleep they can eat a good portion of your face off before you wake up because they have an anaesthetic venom.

Camel Spiders aren't venomus. I found that text on a Biology website I could probably find it again if I needed to but I don't remember the url at the moment. It came to me in an e-mail with no text so I did a bit of research.

And yes it is two of them. Looks to me like one attacked the other.

that is a really big spider

:shiftyeyes:


--------------------
In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said, "Is it good, friend?"
"It is bitter, bitter," he answered;
"But I like it
Because it is bitter,
And because it is my heart."
