Great Googley Moogley. Those things are bigger than my cat!! How would you like to slide down into your sleeping bag after a hard day in the desert and feel THIS GUY cuddling up to your ankle???
Does this not put you in mind of the Alien movies?
myramains sent me this photo of "camel spiders" and in the email she said that if she had to go to war, being killed in action would not be her top fear after seeing these nasty things. Apparently, a guy found one of these in his sleeping bag.
A fate worse than death? Possibly. Maybe a fate leading to death.
