my dad used to live in saudi arabia and one night when he was camping out in the dessert with his buddies one of those fuckers chewed a hole in his friends face. They sting you and make your flesh numb and then just chew the area of flesh away... I hate desserts

Where the hell did that thing come from? They gotta have a big food supply to get that big... or just freaky genetic mutations.

Question is though, do you run screaming like a girl or take a stand and try to stomp the mofo. Probably try to stomp it then run. Or if you're a soldier, just shoot the fooker.

The video was freaky enough watchin it chomp on that scorpion. Imagine waking up and seeing that thing munchin on yer nose.

I think that photo is ps'd. From what I have read, the camel spider is only the size of a five year old kid's hand and that thing is fucken huge. Still creepy as hell though.

Urban legends about the camel spider (properly termed a solpugid or solifugid) are as old as the proverbial hills, but they made a huge resurgence when vectored by American troops in Kuwait during Desert Storm. They're not quite as big as your hand (unless you're a five-year-old), and very shy and secretive. They do like to hide in the shadows, and they do run very, very quickly for a critter (they can reach about 10 MPH, the fastest known non-flying arthropod). They make no noise whatsoever, they have no venom whatsoever, and they do not eat flesh--they eat small desert arthropods like crickets and pillbugs. The rumors of their attacking camels, or crawling onto sleeping GIs' faces, apparently stem from one of two things, both of which may be true to some extent: (1) they may use hair to line their burrow when they are about to lay a batch of eggs, said hair being clipped from dead camels or other dead mammals (and a sleeping GI is not much different), and/or (2) dead camels are covered with flies, and crawling over a camel corpse may make for a convenient way to get a good meal of flies.
