Did you guys know we have camel spiders in Colorado? NOW YOU DO. This isn't technically THE Middle Eastern camel spider, but it's in the Solifugae family and this was the biggest and most aggressive one I've ever seen in person. It actually charged me with its claws in the air shortly before this picture was taken! #insects #arachnid #arachnids #solifugae #solifuge #camelspider #spider #sunspider #imnotscared #cool #critter #naturephotography

This my friends, is a fully grown Sun Spider, class arachnida, order solifuge. Its pretty much the cross between a scorpion and a tarantula. This one i found trying to build a burrow in the corner of my garage. These guys look menacing and when you see them run they'll scare you even more, but honestly its harmless. They do not have venom and spend their days hunting other desert bugs. #bugs. #hexapoda. #arachnida. #solifuge #windscorpion. #sunspider. #camelspider. #desertlife. #desert #desertcritters. #newmexico.

That's a nope bug.

This is a Sunspider or Solifuge, otherwise known as Red Roman Spiders.
They are one of the scarier looking arachnida, which is actually harmless, but they are not spiders, they are part of the Arachnid order, as are scorpions.
It is believed that they have a lifespan of around one year. There are roughly 6 families, 30 genera and 240 species that have been identified in South Africa.
Solifuge bites may be painful, but they do not have the ability to inject venom and are therefore deemed of no medical significance to man.
Solpugidae sp, Cederberg, South Africa.

Solifugae, or more lovingly referred to as a camel spider, sun spider or wind scorpion. Didn't realize we had these in Florida until a couple weeks ago. 😍

So last night, I got back to my cabin and discovered that I had a visitor, this Sun Spider (aka wind scorpion, camel spider, solifuge) #solifugae #sunspider #arachnid #windscorpion #camelspider #solifuge #invertebrate #Malibu #socal #outdoorscienceschool
