I think this tops it for me though... *shiver*
the ones pictured are only bout 3 inches long and arent venomous.....we have lil ones around here that get an inch to an inch and a half....real cool critters but pretty far down on the dangerous meter....
The ones I've seen on youtube and pics from the Middle East are huge! They leave some NASTY bites too from what I've seen.
trick photography, and a 3 inch "bug" looks freaking huge if you arent used to seeing them that big....
once again they aint venomous, least not enough to cause issues, even if a big one bites you....and given they are active hunters the only way your gonna get bit is if yah mess with them or roll over on one in your sleep....
Also people think they will chase you because they will use a person's shadow as shelter from the sun and follow them as they walk.
EDIT: How did this turn from spiders to solpugids? lol off-topic
Yeah okay... but arachnid =/= spider... keep that in mind... it can but not always.
Australia: Even though nature vomited monsters all over this barren isle of Lovecraftian horror, we live here anyway, because we just don’t give a crap.Anyway, one day I was sweeping their sunroom and this huge lumbering huntsman was thumping his way across the floor, so I swept around him as I would have any other time
