Yao, you got to check your sources. Im not saying that the spiders aren't spiders, but those wound pics are not because of spider bits. Hell the last one has some photoshop touchup work.

Yao, why are you being mean to Ben again?

Ham, that first snopes article was great. I'm glad I read it. I love the "note the closeness of the sleeve in the picture." The camel spiders don't get THAT big.

Fake or not, you do not...I repeat...you do NOT want to get bit by a brown recluse spider. There was a girl that lived in the my apartment complex when I lived in the Woodway Apartments in Centreville a few years back. One of them bit her and F*CKED HER SH*T UP! She peeled back a little corner of her bandage and that was enough for me.

I still think these suckers are scarier, non-venomous or not...

Tailess whip scorpion: It's an unholy cross of spider, scorpion and praying mantis. can grow up to 7.5 inches large. if I ever saw one of these things in my house, I'd move.

I'm going to go ahead and dispute snopes:

Quote:
The order Solifugae is a group of arachnids, containing around 900 species. The name derives from Latin, and means those that flee from the sun. The order is also known by the names Solpugida, Solpugides, Solpugae, Galeodea and Mycetophorae. Their common names include camel spider, wind scorpion, and sun spider. Solifugae are not true spiders (which are from a different order, Araneae). Like scorpions and harvestmen, they belong to a distinct arachnid order.
Most Solifugae live in tropical or semitropical regions where they inhabit warm and arid habitats, but some species have been known to live in grassland or forest habitats. The most distinctive feature of Solifugae is their large chelicerae. Each of the two chelicerae are composed of two articles forming a powerful pincer; each article bears a variable number of teeth. Males in all families but Eremobatidae possess a flagellum on the basal article of the chelicera. Solifugae also have long pedipalps, which function as sense organs similar to insects' antennae and give the appearance of the two extra legs. Pedipalps terminate in eversible adhesive organs.
Solifugae are carnivorous or omnivorous, with most species feeding on termites, darkling beetles, and other small arthropods; however, solifugae have been videotaped consuming larger prey such as lizards [1]. Prey is located with the pedipalps and killed and cut into pieces by the chelicerae. The prey is then liquefied and the liquid ingested through the pharynx.
Reproduction can involve direct or indirect sperm transfer; when indirect, the male emits a spermatophore on the ground and then inserts it with his chelicerae in the female's genital pore.
As indicated by their name, Solifugae are mostly nocturnal, and seek shade during the day. It was this behaviour which led coalition soldiers in the 2003 invasion of Iraq to think these arachnids were attacking them. In reality, they were merely moving toward the newly available shade provided by the soldiers' presence. The absence of shade sends them away.

There are published studies of one species, Rhagodes nigrocinctus, carried out in Iraq in 1978 by a pair of researchers who did histological preparations of the chelicerae, and found what they believed to be epidermal glands (Aruchami & Sandara Rajulu 1978 ). Extracts from these glands were then injected into lizards, where it induced paralysis in 7 of 10 tests. While researchers have been unable to locate similar glands in other species, this particular species does appear to possess venom. Accordingly, we must acknowledge the that some Solifugae are venomous.
The Camel Spider found in Iraq is, infact, venemous with a neuro-toxin.

It also grows to roughly the size of the ones you see in the picture with the soldiers as proven in this LIFE SIZED 1:1 scale photograph.

Ok, Matt. Even that picture on the bottom shows the bugger to be about 6 to 7 inches accross (maybe 10 diagonally). Still not as big as they're portrayed. 7 out of 10 lizards to me doesn't prove venom as powerful as that of other spiders.

I'm not generally bugged by spiders, but these things are pretty ugly and intimidating.

That's paralysis, not the numbing effect that they're depicted as having.

Either way, in the desert we're briefed to watch out for them.
