The camel, wind, or scorpion spider is from the Arachnid order Solifugae. The name Solifugae generated from Latin which means "to flee from sun". Living in virtually all the deserts in the Eastern and Western Hemispheres except Australia. They are carnivorous or omnivorous and feed on beetles and small arthropods. The Camel Spider has very powerful jaws that it uses to tear apart its prey and liquifies it, and then digests its food through the pharynx. Mostly nocturnal, it runs for the shade during the day and misinformed individuals jump to the conclusion that the "spider" is chasing them. In actuality the Solifugae is just seeking out the shade that you provide.
