Buddy came across this giant spider in the badlands of nodak,never seen one nor do I want to,guess its common in the hot dry areas of the west and kin to the camel spider found in the middle east...

Here they call it the "wind scorpion" very aggressive,said the thing squared off with him as he tried to whack it. Non-venomus but a nasty bite.

Anyone ever see one?

If that thing squared up with me I would run all the way back to Minnesota. Not a spider fan. Especcially if I can't easily step on it to kill it.

Camel spider, wind scorpion, sun spider all the same.

They wont bother you unless you bother them they are more defensive than "aggressive"

They usually only get to be like 4 inches

I think they are actually a lot LARGER, they had to use the "shrink to fit" tab to fit it on this screen!!
