Ethiopia camel spider
I was searching for some facts about Camel spider, and find your web site. 2004/05 I served in UN mission in Eritrea/Ethiopia as Military Observer. First 5 months I spent in Bure, small Ethiopian village on the Ethiopia/Eritrea border. This is on the edge of Danakil depression, one of the most unpleasant (hot like a hell) desert in the world. Of course, we run onto this spiders on several times, mostly in night.
I'm sending to you two photos of that "beauty"... Best regards,
Darko

 

 

 


Iraq camel spider and scorpian
I stumbled upon your website, and thought you might like the picture I took, while stationed in Iraq.  The question is always the same, "Who won?"

I was cleaning up a classroom in Las Vegas when I spotted this guy. I thought she was following me from Iraq; I had no idea they lived in the Southwest. Anyway, I decided to take a picture with my phone...here it is...feel free to post it in your picture section. Sorry about the quality. Thank you Stephan

 


Thank you Jeremy for your pictures and your service. Jeremy's picture of his big toe after a camel spider bite.


Niger
I am a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer and I served in the country of Niger.  Until I found your website, my friends and I didn't know what exactly these creepy things were.  On my training group's first night in country, one girl found one inside her mosquito net.  An older volunteer explained that everyone called these Chariot Spiders, but no one knew their real name.  The rumour there was that they would kill scorpions and carry them away to eat on their long backs, hence the "chariot" name.
During my two years in Niger, I had three run into my house.  They came in at night, seeming to be attracted to my light.  The first time, I had no idea what it was as it moved so fast.  It scared me enough that I hopped on top of my table and grabbed my broom to try and kill it if it came too close.  I eventually gave up, turned off my light, and ran outside to get inside my bed and net.  A fire was still glowing in my yard and I saw it exit my house.
The last time one came into my house, I made sure it was on the other side of the room and ran to my bed again to get inside my net.  When I woke up, I found it still lurking near a trunk and sprayed it with my bug spray.  It ran out at me and I smashed it with my broom.  I took the picture attached to this email so I could ask my friends if it was definitely a "chariot spider". 
I just wanted to share my experiences, our rumours from Niger, and let you know that I really appreciate you website for giving the facts about these nasty things.  I was happy to find out they are not poisonous and are not spiders (I questioned that when I saw the extra pair of legs).
Thanks again for you site!

Viva Las Vegas
I know you guys have a lot of stories from Iraq and Deserts over seas but I live right in the heart of Las Vegas (only for five years, I thought it was a valley but we are surrounded but desert). and these things kept getting into my house and garage. So big that they don't crawl on walls or anything like normal spiders (yet, I guess they're not really spiders). So I'm posting a picture to show how big these things are even in huge cities. Everytime I see one I know to call the bug guy because IMMEDIATELY after the spray wears off I'm killing these things sometimes TWICE a day! I haven't had an aggressive one yet but they seem to be very smart and I have a hard time killing them, but thats also given the fact that I wouldn't want to be within 50 ft of one. The pic I have is IDENTICAL to the ones shown in Iraq that are the size of donut tires!
