Camel spiders are creepy

Camel spiders are very creepy looking

What is a camel spider

 Camel Spiders can be found in virtually all deserts in the eastern and western hemispheres. Camel spiders in Iraq and other parts of the middle east seem to have a little bit of a story, maybe an urban legend behind them. One urban legend says that Camel spiders in Iraq would feed upon human flesh.

Camel spiders in Iraq are also said to grow real big in size. It was/is also rumored that Camel spiders, especially the camel spiders in Iraq can run up to 10 mph. Other rumors and stories about camel spiders in Iraq include them disemboweling camels and leaping into the air and screaming.

Camel spiders in Iraq are said to not actually be as large as people claim and that the spiders are faster on land than other invertebrates but camel spiders in Iraq are not as fast as people make them out to be.

With all of the information out there one has to ponder the thought "do camel spiders in Iraq eat people, camels and run as fast as people say they do"? Are there some camel spiders in Iraq that are huge and fast and can disembowel a camel?

Whether or not any of the urban legends about camel spiders in Iraq are true or not it is interesting to learn about these camel spiders.
