I've seen one, and too be truefull it scared the s*** out of me, i was told to stamp me foot, so i did, and within seconds, it was up close to the glass, and waiting, it was mean, and nothing I would ever have.

He told me that after this one dies it will be his last, as there very unpredictable, in the fact that it will run towards you a soon as you open the tank to feed it, so you have to be very quick.

There very Fast (he said: they can out run a human), very aggressive, can run up glass quicker then my pokie, and have a very painfull bite, and the set ups for them need to be huge, 4 foot fish tank is min. I read that they only live for 1-5 months in captivity as in the wild there hunting ground is anywhere, so I've read that the set ups for them have to be big, in order to get them to live longer.

I very much doubt your'll find many that will keep this animal, and the ones that do, will only know the basics, because of the lack of knowledge in the speices.

good luck thou,

Camel spiders are actually scorpions.

They only chase you if you provide shade and they are seriously rapid.

There are a few diff species that range in size but they ALL look scary.

I remember the first time someone sent me a photo of one of these, I thought it was something from a sci fi horror movie. Don't think I've ever seen one being sold though - didn't think anyone would ever want one!

The care sheet says that they are neither Scorpions nor spiders but belongs to its own order- solifugid
