This is a Solpugid, a harmless, non-venomous relative of both spiders and
scorpions. They are commonly called Sun Spiders or Wind Scorpions. In parts
of the U.S., they are called Sand Puppies. Solpugids are generally found in
arid climates. In the Middle East, they can grow to five inces or more in
leg span, and they are called Camel Spiders.
non-venomous but still crazy weird and scary when you are being chased by one!
