That thing looks like a cross between a praying mantis and a scorpion! That things gives me the creeps. I need to find a pic of camel spiders in Iraq.

I'm with Livingston. I can't stand bugs even smaller than that... mutant thing. I could never live in Florida. The bugs there are HUGE. You could have a conversation with them they're so big.

Me, I don't like looking over the edge of a high place. Airplanes are fine; balconies are NOT. I think I'm going to have to add Livingston's bug as a close second.
Well, it was mostly in an aquarium so wasn't flying around the place. That one in the pick wasn't the one my room mate had, it's the only pick I could find.

Yeah, well let's see you say that to the thing when it gets loose and you wanna smash it but your room mate keeps saying help me find Sam! I wanna smash Sam!

You know, around here that wouldn't be considered the least bit strange I think! That's not a bad idea though, a little collar with a bell would've been a good idea!

I did a google image search on it and all I can say is YIKES! The spider seems pretty dangerous too! There's a pick of a Camel Spider bite on there which is pretty nasty, didn't post it, but just do a google image search on Camel Spider and you'll see what MrQ is talking about! It is a nasty spider!

A couple of videos of that Australian monster!

I don't know what's scarier in this one: the kid or the bug!

Tried to find a video of MrQ's spider but most were of it eating lizards, kinda graphic to post I guess. You can find them on youtube though. It is one nasty looking spider.
