That Dear friends is a Sun Spider

DaftCapybara 10/15/2012



I'm never wearing pants again.

soulofWren 10/15/2012

There used to be a million of these in my house growing up and they would all mob together in this one room downstairs. When they felt foot vibrations they would run out and attack, and would even chase me.


Also they are no spiders but are in the arachnid family, I think closer related to scorpions. They are awful!!!

bribowie 10/15/2012

While I was wearing them, I should add.

Sparkybear 10/15/2012

Here's a picture of one on my back patio in Arizona. That is a large bag of charcoal near it, for reference. As I tried to take a picture it kept turning and running toward me. I thought it was just a coincidence but when I talked to the local college entomologist he said they are very predatory and was most likely going after me purposely.

Edit: Mine was ...

jrrhea 10/15/2012

At least it pays rent.

klsi832 10/15/2012

when i was in Iraq (Marine), we had a lid to a shipping container that was completely detachable (no hinge) that just happened to be out where we had our guard post. we decided to turn it into a camel spider arena.

thats not the interesting part.

the interesting part is that the first 2 camel spiders that we put in had a fight to the ...

CorporateNINJA 10/15/2012

What's so WTF about that I keep quarters in my pocket all the time.

pauldy 10/15/2012

Did you burn your pants and your house and your lower torso?

SecondTalon 10/15/2012

Wow again? It's even better the second time.

knestleknox 10/15/2012

I legit would've died on the spot in self defense

owlsrule143 10/15/2012

That's the biggest panty cricket I've ever seen.

Oilburner 10/15/2012

That's a US quarter. Thanks for putting the wind scorpion next to it for size reference.

lgmjon64 10/15/2012

Wtf? Looks like some spider/scorpion hellspawn.

[deleted] 10/15/2012

This is why i don't wear pants. Too risky.

whatisthis8 10/15/2012

Saber tooth crotch cricket!

Slow_Death 10/15/2012

Solifuge look kind of derpy. In fact, most arachnids do. They either look derpy or straight from the bowels of Hell, and sometimes both.

Not as derpy as a opilione, though.

Aspel 10/15/2012

Oh god it has ten legs. This is the end.

Shamborsky 10/15/2012

There you go, Wind Scorpion or Sun Spider. They are harmless and considered beneficial because they eat other insects. Not poisonous.

tattedspyder 10/15/2012


[deleted] 10/15/2012

This is the camel spider. You know, those things that everyone said ran 25mph, screamed, ate camels, could jump 10 feet in the air, were a foot long and supposedly killed people? Yeah. That's it. That's all it is. I know in your pants it's scary, but I still find it funny, I used to hear "Don't you know what our troops are dealing with while trying to save us from terrorists with their weapons of ...

rolfraikou 10/15/2012

Welcome to Australia. You won't last long. No one does

Modernfighter44 10/15/2012

mrcleatus 10/15/2012

expecting picture of penis, got spider instead.

equally as frightening.

conspiracy_thug 10/15/2012

Oh, that's a quarter. I live in Illinois and I find them in my pants all the time. No need to panic. They are worth .25 US dollars and are about the size of a Sun Spider.

ShhhhOkay 10/16/2012

ah, the rare dick-scorpion only found in the ozarks

dirtyjersey84 10/15/2012

leirea 10/15/2012

I think everyone forgot the important part of this story. Who cares what this thing is called, and how big it is or isn't. This abomination was in some poor fellow's pants! Fuck!

datdudesb 10/15/2012

Nice try. Quarters don't crawl!

dweebcentric 10/15/2012

Provenzer0 10/15/2012

I expected a penis.

Then I thought if I expected a penis, then why did I still click?

Peanutbutterlobster 10/15/2012

Looks like somebody used a wabberjack on your penis.

MuffinDewz 10/15/2012

One question that everyone is thinking: "How the HELL did THAT get in your pants??"

[deleted] 10/15/2012

You had a quarter crawling around in your pants? weird.

doseone 10/15/2012

Is that a camel spider in your pant, or are you just happy to see me?

Fullyscared 10/15/2012

There would have been a dung beetle in my pants shortly after finding that in there.

tywebb 10/15/2012

I don't know how you got that much self restraint but I would've sent that little fucker on a one way trip to Allah so fast it would break my legs. Fuck every single thing about that bug.

johnsmcjohn 10/15/2012

Why do I always read the spider stories as I'm about to fall asleep?

Tarijeno 10/16/2012

That would have ruined me for LIFE.

DiceyWhat 10/16/2012

Greatttt. Today every time I think I have an itch in my pants my brain is going to flag it as a scrotum hungry camel spider. Thanks Reddit.

qb3d 10/16/2012

I just had images of this thing running at you shouting "IMMA FUCK YO SHIT UP!!!!!" in a voice similar to Michael Clarke Duncan's.
