How big is the camel spider?

It is generally believed that Camel spiders as large, poisnous predators, as fast as a running man, with a huge appetite for large mammals. But this is not true. These camel spiders do not actually that much, and they are not so large but the real camel spider is still an amazing predator. Camel spiders are not even spiders. They are members of the class Arachnida, but they are actually solpugids.

Camel spiders, also called wind scorpions and Egyptian giant solpugids, are only about 6 inches (15 centimeters) long. These creatures aer 6 times that size that they are the spider is invariably placed in the foreground where the lens makes it appear much bigger than its actual size. True, they are fast, but only compared to other arachnids. Their top speed is estimated at 10 miles (16 kilometers) per hour.
