The camel spider stories began to spread during the 1990-91 Gulf War and has now reemerged and become even more widespread with the return of U.S. troops to Iraq. Most of the stories on the internet are completely untrue. These creatures are not dangerous to humans. But, dangerous or not, these creatures are horrifying to encounter. I pity anyone who encounters one for the first time.

With the internet becoming so much more widely used during this Iraq conflict, rumors are spreading like wildfire. E-mail chain letters with claims, "he/she said his or her friend—or friend of a friend—knew a soldier stationed in Iraq who had said that these camel spider could inject a sleeping soldier with anesthetic, then chew out a chunk of flesh."Webmasters with imagination and flare for the absurd take it to the extreme with claims such as, camel spiders are know to eat dogs or cats.
Most people don't know that the camel spider can also be found in the southwest U.S. and Mexico. While the recent buzz is all about the Middle Eastern camel spider, its North American cousin has no shortage of tall tales. In Mexico, they're known as matevenados, which means "deer killers." The buzz seems to ebb and flow, but before it is over the camel spider will have had is full fifteen minutes and maybe just a little place in history.

Some common Camel Spider Myths:
1. Camel spiders can move at speeds over 30 MPH, screaming while they run.2. Camel spiders can be as large as a frisbee. 3. Camel spiders venom is an anesthetic that numbs their prey. 4. Camel spiders can jump three feet high.5. Camel spiders get there name because they eat the stomachs of camels.

THE FACTS
Most of these claims are false or greatly exaggerated.
1. Camel spiders top speed - 10 mph.
2. Size: Up to 6 inches
3. They have no venom.
4. They don't jump.
5. Called camel spiders because they live in the desert.
They actually aren't spiders at all, they're solpugids.. Along with spiders, they are members of the class


I've searched some other websites besides the one where i got the information above, most of them confirmed some of the mythes, like they do scream when they run. and if provoked they will attack a human. camel spiders are also nocturnal so they find shady places during the day. if you move something thats shading a camel spider, the camel spider will go for your shadow. if you run away, it will chase you screaming while it runs. if you trip and fall it will go under your body to hide from the sun.
if you put camel spider eggs in water, they will hatch. camel spiders are also canabalistic, they will attack eachother and eat eachother if they are provoked.
