  Iraq Camel Spiders

Iraq Camel Spiders
Image credit: US Military

Uploader comment: This image shows two camel spiders, the size is misleading, as they are close to the camera and are not as large as they have been made out to be in recent months.

Image status: EXPLAINED Camel spiders are real however their size and ferocity has been exaggerated, in this picture the spiders are close to the camera and appear much larger than they actually are.

They look like some sort of whip scorpion or another insect class... maybe the reason they look so big is that they *are* so close to the camera, thus enhancing their size twofold.

i heard they are a cross-breed of a desert spider and a scorpion so they can be very dangirous if u get them mad they could proply do the same thing the face-huggers do in the "aliens" movies

hotstreak is close. They are arachnids, but not spiders. They are in the same family though
