This spider is found mainly in Middle East deserts, this being the reason why it is also called "desert spider".
Other names are "wind spider" or "wind scorpion"- because of the above-mentioned sound they usually make when running- and "sun scorpion". Strictly speaking, despite the fact that they belong to the species of arachnids, they are not spiders or scorpions but Solifugids (in Latin, it means "flee from the sun").
The name "Camel" derives from the ancient belief that these arachnids ate Camel stomachs, which â€“apparently- is their favorite dish or egg lair. Yet, they are also known for killing cows and, of course, humans. Butâ€¦are these tales true?
