Day 104-B - Camel Spiders
Solifugids are commonly called camel spiders simply because they share the desert with camels, not because they eat them. Very quick and frighteningly aggressive, they have a strong bite, but rarely attack humans or larger animals. They prey primarily on other arthropods, like scorpions, but have been known to kill lizards, mice and birds.
Common rumors about camel spiders (which technically aren't spiders, but are arachnids) started in the 1991 Gulf War. Camel spiders are quick, but far from capable of the speeds attributed to them, and are completely silent. Fearsome hunters, they are not venomous, though their bite can produce slight numbness and extreme pain.
