Looks like someone brought one of these things to the UK from Afghanistan...

...and LOST IT. Apparently it got into a kitbag that was brought to their home...

I feel sorry for anyone who lives in Colchester at the moment. If you do, I suggest you move houses...NOW. :ton:

They say it's not really a spider... but I wouldn't care. I wouldn't set foot in my house again until it was caught/killed... so I agree 100% with that family!

When my husband was living in Saudi Arabia as a kid (he grew up there), he used to go camping the desert with his Dad a lot, and they used to string hammocks between Land Rovers to sleep because of the camel spiders - you seriously don't want them crawling on you at night when you're camping! His Dad (my father in law) once said that they were joking around at night, going out for a night hike and he said 'this is when you shine your torch down and there are camel spiders there!' sohe shone his torch down - and sat there, right by his foot, was the biggest one he'd ever seen! He then showed me a dead one he had in a box... needless to say, I am very, very VERY glad they are not indigenous to this country. They are absolutely, freakishly terrifying!

Whether it is caught or not, it won't survive - it's too cold here, and probably won't manage to survive the winter.

That story had me biting my lip..and I only do that when I'm very creeped out.

That story had me biting my lip..and I only do that when I'm creeped out.
I know... it's a really horrible thought, isn't it? My father in law has lots of camel spider and scorpion related stories... all told to thoroughly creep me out (or so I believe, anyway!).

My run in with a big old field spider earlier this year was enough, and that was half the size of the camel spider (to cut a long story short, I got up at 3am to go to the loo - half asleep, I felt something touch my toe, so I looked down and the biggest, hairiest black field spider you can imagine had decided to cuddle up against my foot. I screamed, kicked the thing away (and then felt bad because, despite being terrified, the way it huddled against the wall meant it was obvious it was a frightened as I was) and then proceeded to sit on the loo for another half an hour, too scared to get off! I then had to sit up for a further 3 hours, because I couldn't sleep - no matter what happened, all I could feel was the spider, sitting on my big toe... *shudders*

Funny thing is, it still lives in my utility room (the room next to the bathroom), behind the fridge. I know this, because when we bought a new fridge a couple of weeks ago, we had to dump the old one... when we moved it, there was my old pal, the big, black, hairy spider! Still, live and let live - it's not my fault it scares me, and it seems happy to live behind the fridge, so as long as it doesn't sit on my foot again, I'm happy to share my house with it :)

remote91
28-08-08, 18:47
Aww that's kind of sweet that it still lives with you :D

I have a huge spider in my room that I just don't want to disturb. I get very nervous though when I can't see where it is and I get scared that I'll wake up at night and it will be on my face.

Do you know anymore of your father in laws creepy stories?

They're a good read.

28-08-08, 19:04
If I was a psychologist I would probably like to conduct a study in order to evaluate if this generalized fear of spiders has anything to do with TV or movies or whatever.

Why arachnophobia and not...I dunno...lion-phobia? I don't see what's so dangerous or scary about spiders. If it wasn't so common I wouldn't give it a second thought but I know a lot of people who are arachnophobic ...

But the thing is freaking huge. Usually I'll just kill them [with a shoe], but recently I've been more inclined to go for the glass method. I guess I don't really mind the huge ones anymore for some reason. They seem bigger and friendlier :p

it might crawl in your mouth while your asleep...

That reminds me of some sort of statistic I heard while I was in school last year. My Biology teacher said the average person swallows about 14 spiders every year while they are asleep. Oh dear. :eek:

----------------------------

I first became freaked out by spiders when I saw this episode of Buffy the Vampire slayer when I was a kid. I can't remember the name of it (would help if someone shed some light on what it was called). There was this box and every time someone opened it a giant spider-like thing would jump out and stick to your face and eat it or something. Scared the crap out of me.:hea:

Yep - same with rats. Although they (spiders) freak me out (no psychologist needed - I know *exactly* why I am scared of them - my Dad used to chase us with them / dingle them in front of our noses when we were watching TV / generally be evil with them when we were kids (he's a fireman, and so we had to put up with some very silly, juvenile behaviour from my Dad when we were younger!) - to this day, when Dad helps me do DIY and we come across spiders, I run from him as much as the arachnid!), I refuse to kill them - they have as much right to be there as I do, and it's not their fault they scare me :)

clw
28-08-08, 19:48
its scary because this is the time of the year when daddylonglegs come out and flying spiders are the worst spiders, some people say their not spiders but they are to me. once a wasp flew up my trouser leg i didnt notice until i heard buzzing when i sat down and my leg started stinging i looked down my trousers and there was a wasp on the top of my knickers i ran so fast but i dont know why because it was already on me and i had already been stung but it disappeared.remote91 i think jumping on the spider and wrestling it like a crocodile would of been the best answer you dont live in wandsworth do you because im kind of scared of your violent ways lol.

lol, if i'd ever met a brown recluse and didn't get it treated in time, its very safe to say i'd be disfigured. brown recluses have a very nasty bite, as you saw in that pic i sent you. O.O

the trouble with those is they start of looking like a completely normal spider bite.. it takes about 4 days to realize that your skin is starting to fester and rot.

Texas sadly, is infested with the things. >.< i saw some at the zoo, and the zoo people have to keep them in very tiny, clear plastic cups with lids on them.

here's a picture of the spider in question:

mmmm....EEWW!!!*cringes* omg I don't even know what I would do if a Camel Spider was in my den...YIPP!!:(

Naomichi
29-08-08, 14:17
Right...

I did some looking around and this is what I've found out.

1. Camel spiders can move at speeds over 30 MPH, screaming while they run.
2. Camel spiders can be as large as a frisbee.
3. Camel spiders venom is an anesthetic that numbs their prey.
4. Camel spiders can jump three feet high.
5. Camel spiders get their name because they eat the stomachs of camels.
6. They eat or gnaw on people while they sleep. Due to the numbing effect of their venom, the victim is unaware until they awake.

Scary huh?...

Well yes of course, in the same way that vampires, werewolves and witches are scary.

BECAUSE THEY'RE ALL MYTHS.

Now, right here is pretty much the truth.

1. Camel spiders top speed - approx. 10 mph.
2. Size: Up to 6 inches.
3. They have no venom.
4. They don't jump.
5. Called camel spiders because they live in the desert.

Awww.. they don't scream?

Still, live and let live - it's not my fault it scares me, and it seems happy to live behind the fridge, so as long as it doesn't sit on my foot again, I'm happy to share my house with it :)

You're far too soft Elysia. It's only a matter of time before your utility room becomes its own private nest, with thousands of mini-spiders scuttling all over the walls and freaking you out no end. And none of that put-it-in-a-glass-throw-it-out-the-window nonsense. It'll just crawl back in again. If I were you, I'd find the heaviest, bluntest object I could and crush it until it's nothing more than a brown smear on the wall. That's how you deal with a spider problem. That or a vacuum cleaner. Or ... you don't happen to have a shotgun, do you? ;)

It is a bad bug! What could possibly be worse than an enormous field spider?

Whales on stilts would be way worse.

i don't find it scary myself, it's not even a furry spider (http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/image/s_spider.jpg) it's orange and it looks cool to me :) but i can see why others might not like it.

now snakes, are horrid.

Aww... When I watch that video, I really can't help but feel happy for it because it seems like it's enjoying itself. :p

I'm arachnophobic, but I really don't mind spiders too much unless they're actually on me, or could easily get there. I have spiders in my windows. I call them "window spiders". Window spiders are alright, because they stay in the windows.

Then there was the one in the shower. Needless to say, I didn't feel like sharing the shower with it. Didn't like the one that fell from the ceiling and into my bed very much either.

Great read, and i am assuming that whole "half the size of man" is also a part of the rumors right?

Good to see that scorpions are finally getting what they deserve! :tmb:
