It's in a HMMWV tire track. I swear, the first time i hit it with my helmet, it flipped me off with four of its legs and yelled "Allahu Akhbar".

Camel spiders

aren't actually spiders. They belong to the Harvestman Family. They have them here in Arizona, I think they call them Sun Spiders here. They have no venom, but their heads are bisected with a set of jaws on each side. These things are voracious hunters and at this size, they prey primarily on rodents.

Look up Camel spiders for a good close-up view of their ugly faces. I think it's what the designers of the the Predator creature used for inspiration.

I know it ain't no tarantula. I was referring to the size where you said"It's in a HMMWV tire track." I was just saying I saw bigger. But I still Despise Spiders

Agreed, snake

Spiders are evil creatures that came directly from Satan's nostrils, but as terrified as I am of them, I have a sick fascination with them. People weren't kidding when they said the monsoons bring out all sorts of critters here in Southern AZ. I've seen more damned tarantulas in a week than I have in my lifetime previous to this. Creepy.
