I've heard uit's false, too- I think the link I posted says that

- if you read the portion above the photo and then read the portion below the photo. But still! Just having one of those crawl across me, even if it was fake, would scare the daylights out of me!

but I like fabricated rubbish...

Seriously though. I checked out a few sources on the infamous camel spider and I bet it could do some damage to a human if pressed to do so. I just can't think of any situation where that would happen (naturally). I did find a neat video of one tearing up some sort of plant.

It's easy to see why a myth about these spiders would propagate so quickly though; just look at those chompers!!!

Absolutely correct....they aren't vegetarians by a long shot.....my big one would even eat newborn mice.

I wouldn't mind some big spiders here in my yard... I have a few beautiful orb type spiders and such all over the place, and I mean you can't walk 5 feet in the woods without hitting a web... those I don't mind but I've seen(squished) at least 5 young black widows this past week... We also have brown recluses around here but I haven't seen any in my yard yet... but with 5 acres I'm sure I have a little of everything...
