Spiders, Scorpions & The Crawlies

A friend… an ex-friend of mine, Brian Fernandes, sent this to me tonight while I was sitting at my computer doing the internet.

First our conversation opens up with him sending me this picture:

Spider Nest in Hotel Room

and at first glance I think “That’s a big spider” then I think “… but who cares?”… I let it sink in a bit longer and then realized the spider was in a house some where, because of the molding around the corner of the wall there… my guess is a ceiling.

Then I realized that for someone to take a picture like this, they liked walked into a home or hotel for the first time and saw it… meaning this nest full of fuck was growing inside a building somewhere. Then I got the willies…

Brian then sent along a link to a comment from JFreezy left for the story that originally hosted the image above, and it was pretty funny:

I was in Zimbabwe Africa once (don’t ask why, it’s a long story) and the lodge we stayed in was freaking infested with spiders about that size! We spent about 3 hours going around our room killing them so we could sleep without worring about them eating our faces in the middle of the night. In the above comment, Spinksy was 100% correct about the death by flame method! We found one spider that was so huge, when I tried to smash it with a boot I only hit its leg and its LEG left a splatter mark in the wall!! JUST ITS LEG!! So we busted out the makeshift flamethrower (hairspray and lighter) and torched that sucker from 3 inches away. It dropped off the wall, ran like a spider out of hell under a couch! We all screamed like little girls as we watched the couch go up in flames! We put the couch out and found the body hanging from a spring inside the couch. That experience will be burned (no pun intended lol!) into my mind forever! Lesson learned: fire doesn’t solve everything LOL!

… are you freaking serious? Spiders so big he’s having concerns with how to crush them with his shoe?

At this point, I don’t just have the willies… I am more or less making a pool of gasoline around myself that I am prepared to light at the first sign of movement in the house (cats not withstanding).

Anyway, at this point our friendship is in shambles… I have the willies and hate Brian and he decides why not go for broke? So he follows up with this shining example of why mankind should make pocket-sized atomic bombs:

Camel Spider

I think their nick names are “Camel Spider” or something, but they are essentially tailless whip scorpions, we even have them here in the states. I got this picture of one fighting and eating a normal scorpion at my parent’s house a few years ago:

and to top it all off, he finally sends me a movie of one of these things eating a lizard… yea… not a bug, or a butterfly… or a seed… or some lint… oh no, it was eating a lizard

So my plan so far is to simply avoid sleep tonight, and to stay up with my nightvision goggles on, watching the floor… and waiting.

Thanks Buddy!

Update #1: He just sent me this:

Giant Tarantula in Girl’s Hand

That, right there, is like being in an argument with a friend, and burning his house down to make amends…

Update #2: Jens Eckels just added this wonderful bit to the story… “Let’s not forget what happens when you get bitten by a spider (Brown Recluse)”:

Disgusting Brown Recluse Spider Bite

Thanks buddy… <vomits bile all over desk and falls backwards out of chair>

Update #3: Looks like they found one of the world’s largest Golden Orb Weavers in Australia eating a freaking bird.

    Riyad, I feel really bad about all this; I hope I can win you back with this: http://tinyurl.com/yups9e

    Hahah, omg… that is a spider eating a chicken… just the type of spider I’d like to meet in a dark alley :(

    o.m.g…

    I decided to read the blog today while taking a quick break to eat lunch. BAD MOVE. I can hander spiders and even scorpions, but that last picture of the… hand… and a spider bite? Honestly, my gut was considering whether to purge the food I was in the process of eating.

    Riyad, I think this is the end of our friendship.

  11. Jessica July 30, 2008 at 1:17 am #

    please email me the answer to that question (about the brown tarantula).

  12. Riyad Kalla July 30, 2008 at 8:06 am #

    Jessica,
    I’m not sure exactly the species, but I thought you might be asking because you wanted one.

    I did a search for the more docile breeds of tarantula and came up with this:

    There are no “docile’ tarantulas – only specimens within species that are more tolerant of being handled than others! Grammostola aureostriata, Eupalaestrus spp. and B. smithi are very tolerant of handling as are some of the other Brachypelma spp. and some Avicularia spp. especially, A. avicularia. Stay away from any theraphosid from the Old World regions i.e. Africa, India, Asia, etc. from taxa such as Haplopelma, Poecilotheria, Thrigmopoeus, Selenocosmia, Chilobrachys, Pterinochilus, Augacephalus, Stromatopelma, Hysterocrates, Phoneyusa, etc. And, New World tarantulas of the taxa Lasiodora, Ephebopus, Megaphobema, Pamphobeteus, Xenesthis, Nhandu, Acanthoscurria, etc.
    Also, remember that not all specimens within a species will possess the same temperament. Grammostola rosea (the common rosehair tarantula) is commonly recommended as a ‘good’ beginner species, as is Aphonopelma seemanni. However, there exists a great variance in temperaments among specimens of both species and temperaments may change from one stadium to the next.
    In my opinion, G. aureostriata, A. avicularia and B. smithi are three of the best “docile” tarantulas. Of all theraphosids, I’d go with A. avicularia as the most inoffensive and “docile” species.

    (original link)

    and then also found this link too for you: top 10 tarantulas

    Hope that helps.

    NinjaNerd,

    No problem, we understand. I can’t look at that thumb picture without wanting to pour acid all over it and scream my way around my house.

  22. NinjaNerd October 22, 2008 at 11:16 am #

    Me too, but I have no acid. Heck, i am 11. the best i can muster is an evil school – tie, lol.
    Anyway, the GIANT spider at the top was the scariest, how the hell do they get that big?

  23. jessica kennedy October 22, 2008 at 12:57 pm #

    OMG!!! spiders….ahh….not my favorite thing…i wont be sleepin tonight….and ill be checking every corner of the house too…i cant even stand daddy long legs….u have a mean friend…he would be my ex friend too if he did that to me….ahh….all those little spiders and big one…i said hells to the no…spiders and snakes are horrible and shoudnt live!

    • Dannie1308 August 11, 2010 at 8:09 am #

      Well having no snakes and spiders isn’t fair to the animals that eat them…. I am terrified of spiders but they are necessary for the animals that eat them and for the flies and misquitos.

    • Dannie1308 August 11, 2010 at 8:11 am #

      Oh and daddy long legs are not spiders, but they eat spiders. so you should like them. they cant bite you because their fangs are small to break your skin.

      • anon August 28, 2012 at 5:45 pm #

        you do know whats scary about a daddy long legs is that they are the deadliest spider in the world and very common because there venom or poison or w/e is stronger that a black widows!!! it will kill you in about 5 minutes or less but thankfully as you said there teeth cant even penetrate the 1st layer of a humans skin but sooner or later they could evolve and could possibly pierce our skin so id fear that T_T

  26. Recluse October 24, 2008 at 8:22 am #

    LOL to all the ahhh’s out there, spider arnt to bad not many go looking for humans, most people that have died or have found a ” killer” spider is by doing yard work or cleaning a room thats never used Grass spiders for one if notice run away from people and to top it off even if they do bite you at some point, 3 bites wont even kill you and hafe the time you dont even know they did it. one night i was in the bath i leand on the on the wall and 3 hours latter when i was out with friends i looked at me arm and went ” what the hell is that ?” lol it was a small bit mark a lil red buy other then that not to bad lol so i wish you all good luck with hideing under yourbeds and rolling in gas to keep safe lol

    how could you possibly know the numbers of spider consumption? (its like that film perfect storm, when they tell the story of the fisherman onboard before it sinks, yet they all die so how did they know what happend lol)

    Sounds like rubbish to me. please dont prove me wrong!!! friggen hate
    spiders…might be nice on toast though.

  34. sam dude December 16, 2008 at 3:25 pm #

    meh they are just pictures to be honest you do even know if they are real or not so calm down although now im all ichy and feel like a have spiders all over me and i hate it on the average is 7foot per spider i looks around the hole room i was in and i didnt find any thank god >.>

  35. BuggyDan December 16, 2008 at 11:01 pm #

    the photos are very real,but are not what they appear.
    I like the chicken scene,but would question whether the spider
    is responsible for its demise.
    the thumb pix may be real,but 100 brown recluse bites might not
    do this much damage.
    wouldn’t mind a couple of these for pets.

    oh jeez…
    I’m not afraid of spiders…just seriously creeped out by them. To the max. *shudders* I was looking for pictures of them to incorporate into a bust for art class – depicting a phobia – and stumbled across this. I have had shivers running down my spine for several minutes now. Must remember to thoroughly check my room for anything with 8 legs before I sleep tonight.

  38. A* March 25, 2009 at 11:40 am #

    The last pic is from the bite of a loxoceles… not that kind of spider. And the venom make the own body atactk itself. So… dont get so scared bout big spiders, some of the most venomous are not that big

  43. stef May 7, 2009 at 8:25 am #

    i came across this picture through google search, and at the first thought i was like ” gosh! look at all that dirt around it!!”… But i freaked when i saw that those were spiders too!! omg!! and i am S*** scared of spiders!!! and to think i was afraid of those small thin eight legged creatures. this is like my worst nightmare coming true!

  44. Riyad Kalla May 7, 2009 at 8:50 am #

    stef,

    Totally agree… you have to burn your house down after something like this makes a nest in it :(

  45. Jozey May 8, 2009 at 11:30 am #

    Is anybody else having a “Harry Potter” movie flash back? Or how about “Eight Legged Freaks?”

    This may be a horrific fact… Spiders have been on earth longer than humans… Maybe we were put on earth or we evelotioned on earth to be their food? Or worse, waht is POSSIBLY we are some how related to the insect. EEEEEEEeeeeeeeppppppppp!!!!!!!!!

  46. Mithril May 13, 2009 at 3:41 am #

    Fucking hell this scared me and made me laugh so hard I cried XD I’m so scared of spiders I scream and get someone else to come kill them. Funny fact, I used to light them on fire in my bathroom with nailpolish remover.. until one ran flaming over my sink into the bin beside the counter… Which caught fire >.>

    I think if I ever saw that huge spider surrounded by those smaller ones, game over. I would blow up the house and then wander around til I died. /shudder

  47. Zoe May 27, 2009 at 2:03 am #

    argh i nearly died!!! *shiver*
    im so freaked out now i feel like there are spiders crawling all over me!! I seriously wouldnt mind living in a bubble now!!

  50. Ryan July 23, 2009 at 9:46 pm #

    Your right about the type of spider the soldier is holding in the 2nd picture. It’s called a Camel Spider, and a lot of soldiers in Iraq were bitten by them because they neglected to check their bedrolls before they went to sleep. They wouldn’t notice the bite, or the spider often-times feeding on them after biting, because the venom has a numbing agent in it that takes away the pain, while the other agents in it dissolve the tissue under the skin, essentially leaving a depression from the feast, if not a large hole (Atleast from what I was told by a few people). I wasn’t aware they were in North America though. Needless to say, I’ll never sleep under the covers again after seeing these pictures you have up. And yes, the vast majority of deadly spiders are no bigger than a half-dollar coin, if not a quarter. Black Widows for example, but I found and killed one (Smashed that little beasty good) while I was in California that was a bit larger than a half dollar, with leg-span included.

I used to love the, but I guess being a mommy changes everything I’m scared of everything now!!! That first one is horrible. I’m itchy all over from it, and now I’m getting ready to go out and kill the thing on my porch with a hairspray+fire torch!

    it makes me so sad to read that people set spiders on fire. I dont want the little guys to suffer. I just killed one for my roommate. Which i usually dont condone. But she was screaming bloody murder and i didnt have time to grab a cup and a peice of cardboard to move the spider outside. Ah well. Stop lighting them on fire. “Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to man.

      Alex,

      I agree with you — I don’t take joy in smashing anything… especially spiders that are bigger than my feet and whose vengeance could consume me and my family.

      Yesterday I found a jumping spider trucking it across the floor. So I got him onto a floor mat, walked him outside and showed him our flowers out front and he very excitedly hopped off and now lives in the front yard eating vermin.

      Win-win.

  67. Joe March 12, 2010 at 7:49 am #

    I woke up this morning and looked at my wall. There was a spider on it. It was pretty big compared to what we get here in Minnesota. I put it in one of my portable tictac containers. I brought it to school, freaked out a lot of girls (and a couple of teachers). I was walking home and I found seven pillbugs, a centipede, and a small spider. I put them in the same container. Before I knew it, my spider had caught all of the pillbugs and the centipede in a web, captured the small spider, and it was now sucking out its internal juices. I named him Denominator. I highly recommend a pet spider.

    • Riyad Kalla March 12, 2010 at 8:26 am #

      Haha, Joe, glad to hear about the new pet spider and that’s an excellent name. Don’t forget some crickets!

    seeing as i LIVE in australia, and 2 inch long spiders freak me out enough. I think i can confidently say i will stroll down the store to buy myself a big lighter and a bigger can of hairspray and sit bolt upright on my bed waiting for the pitter patter..or BOOM BOOM. of one of these Deathbolt Monstrositys, and never, ever, sleep again.
    So I thank you. So much.

      Chazy, if you find anything huge down by you, take a picture and send it to us, we’ll add it to this story!

      Assuming you are still alive of course… if it has eaten you or strung you up in a giant cobweb inside your house… well then nevermind :(

      hahaha, I think taking a flamethrowing everywhere is the only way to protect against these sorts of things :)

    I personally don’t care for spiders. my husband and I just found a brown recluse in our house. we don’t usually kill spiders because they keep down the bug population but after finding that thing anything brown is getting squished. i now have a bite that looks like it is getting bad, It started out the size of a pea and is now the size of a half dollar. not sure what kind of bite it is. after seeing that nasty pic i think I’m going to make a doc apointment.

    Very funny story, but i found it kind of nasty how they burned the spider (if thats what you can call it) just to try and get rid of it. How would you like it if someone lit you on fire and watched you die just because they didnt have enough guts to have one of the hotel workers get it and remove or kill it in another way. Burning it to death?..how cruel.

    You do know, an average human eats 7 spiders in it’s life while sleeping?
    Just saying, NOW you will never sleep again, lol.

  88. kirky January 29, 2012 at 9:33 am #

    After reading this, you are really grateful that you have a bunk bed.

    I used to have a pet turantula. I’d let it crawl all over me. I used to let him out of his cage a lot and let him run around my apartment. Bottom line, I love spiders.

  93. Chance January 8, 2013 at 4:32 pm #

    Infact, last night I had a dream I had another pet turantula. My grandpa accidentally killed it I’m the dream and I cried. ;(
