    Who doesn't love to hate spiders?
    Post pictures of real-life spiders that would give you nightmares if you saw. I'll start.

    An actual real picture I took of a spider which I found in the toilet while I was on holiday two years ago (it was hiding just under the seat). Of course such a beast must die immediately and once I killed it I pooped like I have never pooped before.

    Well, I love spiders and even had a couple of tarantulas a few years back... None the less, there are a few spiders that would give me a few frights, like this one:

    Camel Spiders are Solifugae. They're not "true spiders".
    Doesn't make them less scary, but it's still interesting.

    A tidbit of information from my tarantula-raising girlfriend: Axe/Lynx deodorant kills many types of spiders quite effectively.

    Bleh, I REALLY regret entering this thread now, I saw the top 2 pictures then quickly scrolled down the the bottom without looking to post this reply.

    Stupid invertebrates, I hate them all. (Praying mantises are the worst).

    Especially if you use it as an improvised flame thrower!

    What the flying fuck is that horrible thing?
    And I did not know that vulpes thanks for the info. Your girlfriend raises tarantulas? Like breeding and everything, or just raises them? And for what purpose?
    EDIT: None of this is helping my severe Entomophobia (fear of bugs) And yet I keep coming back here.

    According to BugGuide that is the common House Centipede. (Scutigera coleoptrata)
    Just raises them, for now. She began raising them to get over her own arachnophobia. She's now less scared of spiders than I am.
    It must have worked.
    I personally won't touch her Orange Baboon Tarantula (aka Orange Bitey Thing) with a thirty nine and a half foot pole.
    They're mean, they're fast, and they're huge.

    Fake pic is fake. Camel "spiders" dont get that big.

    Come on, Veho showed us all that spiders are quite cute.
