Camel spiders are huge. While the name “camel spider” doesn’t sound too bad, this spider’s real name is the Egyptian Giant Solpugid. I love this spider because it’s home to many myths and rumors, but a lot of these tall tales are false.
Many myths of the giant camel spider come from the Iraq War.
Basic Information About the Camel Spider
Camel spiders are not real spiders. This is very confusing because the camel spider is part of the Arachnida class, but they’re really solpugids. In fact, these spiders are in the order of solifugae while also being in the class of Arachnida.
