EEEK!!! The Largest Spider ever....

camel spider large 726875


Some facts about Camel Spiders...

*Many believe that they reside in just the Middle East and in Africa. However, some can be found in the South West US and in Mexico.

*Camel spiders can run at an astonashing 10 MPH!

*Camel Spiders are an average of 8 Inches long, but there have been reports of larger sightings, such as the picture shown above.

*Camel Spiders are nocturnal, but they do sprint from place to place during the day to find shade. When the US invaded Iraq, many soliders believed that the spiders were sprinting to attack them. This wasn't the case, however, since they only move during the day to find shade.

*They don't normally attack humans, but when they do, the bites reported have been said to be painful.

    Chuck Norris could eat a camel spider with one Nostril...

    He could eat 3 with one nostril, at the least.

    I know a Marine who is back stateside who always talked about them. He told stories about them. One of the things he saw was that one of them latched onto a Humvee tire. Another thing he said was that at night you could hear them run across the ground and wood because they were so massive... Thats some scary stuff...

    the spiders really aren't that big. they're only 6 inches (15 centimeters) long.

    I've seen this before. That's actualy two of the spiders. one is attached to the other because it died while it was biting the other, but the normal spiders are pretty big anyway. Just wanted to make that known.

    tarantulas and camel spiders arnt aggressive from what i've heard ^^
    - Nightfang October 24, 2010, 7:26 am
    I wouldn't mind running into a tarantula. Some of them aren't really aggressive and pretty docile. The brown recluse has the ability to kill.
    - ThelFrost February 16, 2011, 4:38 am
    Tarantulas are so docile, they are often kept as pets. While camel spiders are also docile, and would rather run then fight, they have been known to attack.
    - Demono February 16, 2011, 4:50 am
    camel spiders arent aggressive, they retreat more often than not. i was bit on the foot by a brown recluse and it wasnt pretty 5 minutes later... 4 shots and they had to lance my foot... it had started turning black and purple all the way up to my lower calf by the time i got to the hospital about 30-45 minutes later
