    Camel spiders eat or chew on people while they sleep. Their venom numbs the area so people can't feel the bites: Camel spiders are not venomous, and though their bites are painful, they are not deadly to humans, according to NSF.Dec 16, 20

    An archeologist went to bed one night in the Arab desert. He woke up, and his face was wet, he looked in the rear view mirror of his jeep, and the spider had chewed his face off! Yet he felt no pain!
    Yes, I saw them often in the Sinai, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq.

    Not an option with a diamond back or moccasin bite, if you did pull thru an amputation of the bite area is very likely.

    Had it for a few weeks until my Canadian stepdad figured out what is was. "What kind of snake is that, ey?" *me* "it's a banded water snake.

    He found a field guide in my room, the jig was up! I had to help him kill it. He was scared $#@!less and could hardly weild the axe as I held the snake with a noose on a pole!

    Florida is where ALL idiots outside the country bring stuff into, we have insects, animals and snakes and lizards that dont belong here. We even have an oriental fish that nothing in fla can compete with that is so widespread they cant get rid of them

    They need HUGE prison sentences for smuggling exotix animals

    Recently fla hired python hunters from india, these indians walk in water barefoot and find the snakes and capture them. After 3 months they told fla theres too many you need hundreds of hunters to diminish the population
    Unfortunately, people acquire these snakes and then when they get so large that they have to start feeding them live rabbits, they don't want them anymore and just dump them in some wilderness area. Florida has a perfect climate for them and plenty to eat, so they thrive. The importation of these animals should carry a serious prison sentence unless they are going to someone licensed to own them.
