May 2, 2004Just talked to a friend that just returned from Iraq. Here`s the story on the Camel Spiders-- about the size of my palm, harmless to humans, he was just fine with those two facts. Now here are the ones that made him just a little uncomfortable-- they can run 25 mph(confirmed when they were running along side his convoy) and have a five foot vertical jump.
I`ve got a pic but can`t post it. If anyone can do it for me let me know and I`ll e-mail it to you.
