looks real to me, infact there is 2 of them..i think what it is..the spider is shedding his skin...the top one is live, and i think the lower is the old skin he was moving out of.
ofcourse it is growing bigger thats why they shed.

It's real, why not... when I lived in Brazil I saw many spiders that were big enough to eat me for lunch.

Yes it is titled a Camel Spider. If that is really real DEAR GOD I AM NEVER GOING TO IRAQ OR BRASIL. If I was out for a stroll at night and saw something like that move i would freak out.

Could a spider that big go after a human and do any damage?

Yep its a camel spider. When i was in DS we use to mess with em cause they would literally get pissed at you and their aggressive nature makes em chase you!

When they catch a lizard its the sickest thing to watch. They hold them down facing away from them and begin eating them alive from the rear of the body / tail and continue to the head while the lizard begins thrashing from the pain then slowly dies but the spider never lets go till its eaten enough!

Sick shit man!

don't know, but the Screaming Yellow Banana Spider does......

"The Screaming Yellow Banana Spider Araneafructus ululandi is one of the least known deadly arachnids on Earth. Even now, decades after the Vietnam War, which was the first experience most Americans had with the fearsome eight-legged horror, it is little studied, even by specialists in the field. It is in the hope of improving our understanding of this deadly marvel of nature that the author presents this page. And also in memory of the 347 American GI's who died from the bite of the Screaming Yellow Banana Spider. And also in the interest of public safety. "

PM sent.

I hate spiders. I've never seen one this big before. The tarantulas grow to a decent size out in New Mexico.... you can hear them squish when you drive over them.

A buddy of mine who I used to work with at Motorola told me about those things. He was in Afghanistan for a few months with the reserves last year. Said that at sunrise in the morning, when he was out at his post, you could see literally HUNDREDS of them off in the distance, burrowing up and down in the sand.

I was just thinking that i would start firing if they came near me. I would end up waking up the whole camp with everyone thinking that we were under attack. I would pump a whole clip into one of those before I even thought of stopping.
