More on Camel Spiders and Other Alleged Giant Spiders

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on April 8th, 2013

Cryptomundian mrmaxima sends in the following info regarding giant spiders from this previous post on Cryptomundo: Camel Spiders and Other Alleged Giant Spiders

My father in law was also in the Vietnam war his 5 man unit did scout work in the jungle and were out for mints at a time. A little about my father in law I have known him for many years and have NEVER known him to lie or make up stories. He rarely talks of the war thinks it was a waste of to many American lives. While in the jungle there he swears he saw spiders with a body the size of a common dinner plate says with the legs they overall span ranged 20-30″ inches across he says he saw more than one always near creeks or water sources. Also said they scared the hell out of the entire unit they shot a few with their M16′s and unloaded full magazines and they were still moving around. Just thought I’d add this to your interesting post. I feel where there is a will life will always find a way there are living things in every environment known and unknown to man! We as mankind have only found an estimated 25% of the total spicies on this planet. So how do we know some of the spiders didn’t evolve in a different way? I will take my father in laws word as truth till someone finds one of the spiders he saw or I die witch ever may come first. Just my input I look forward to reading more of your replys.

    Of these giant spiders (in the Congo, South America and in this case Vietnam), isn’t true they aren’t technically spiders if they do exist because of the lung limitations of spiders? If this is the case and they do exist and are in fact arachnids, then how can they exist?

  4. Jeremy Shea via Facebook responds:

    They exist much like the 8 foot tall ape walking all over America. Meaning they do not.
