I've seen those pictures before.

I don't mind spiders. I don't like really big ones, or biggish ones. (The black widdow you posted I would class as biggish) but I love tiny ones, and like money spiders, and don't mind daddy long legs.

And for some reason those ugly suction things on one of those big spiders really annoy me. If I had those I would pull them off.

They do not belong to the spider family. They are solifugae. But they do belong to the arachnida class, like spiders, scorpions, ticks and mites (and many more).
They are not venomous.

I think I'd like to have one as a pet actually. :lol:

Those spiders are freaky. One more reason why I will not go to the Middle East.
