    "This picture is a perfect example of why you don't want to go to the desert. These are 2 of the biggest I've ever seen. With a vertical leap that would make a pro basketball player weep with envy (they have to be able to jump up on to a camels stomach after all), they latch on and inject you with a local anesthesia so you can't feel it feeding on you. They eat flesh, not just suck out your juices like a normal spider. I'm gona be having night mares after seeing this photo!"

    eeeeeeeeeekkkkk!!!!!!

    " Camel spiders can traverse desert sand at speeds up to 25 MPH, making screaming noises as they run. "

    I'm sorry but this is haunting. Don't olympic sprinters run at about that speed? And then the fact that these bitches "scream".

    Camel spiders are venomous, and their venom contains a powerful anesthetic that numbs their victims (thus allowing them to gnaw away at living, immobilized animals without being noticed). U.S. soldiers were said to have been attacked by camel spiders at night but remained completely unaware of their plight until they awakened in the morning to find chunks of their flesh missing.

    That would be hell, imagine the confusion if you didn't know anything about camel spiders...prior to finding a decnt amount of of flesh missing from your body when you wake.
