I never had arachnophobia until I served in the Sinai. Out on remote site we had to man our perimeter every morning and night, and one morning one of these 4 jawed bastards fell on my shoulder out of the sandbags. Felt like a first-baseman's mitt grabbing me in the dark.

I don't think I've ever moved that fast at anything.....My squad members caught it, and we kept it as a pet for the 6 months we were there. Watching them eat scorpions is amazing.

YOW!

Is that two of the buggers? What the hell are they doing? Those things almost look like the young instar of the critter in 'Alien.' I'd splatter that cluster with my M-16 if I was there.
