He allowed me to come within about 10cm from him. Did not seem to worry about the camera

One of the ugliest creatures out there...

I got a shiver just looking at the pic.

Nice Solifugid, dw1

They belong to the class Arachnida and are  known variously as wind scorpions, sun spiders or even camel spiders

This type of arachnid belongs to the group Solifugae, which is derived from Latin and means “fleeing from the sun”. The term “sun spider” refers to the fact that this insect is active during the daytime and escapes the heat of the day by running from shadow to shadow – often people’s shadows, giving the frightening impression that one is being chased! On the other hand, South Africans tend to refer to this critter as a “Red Roman”, or in Afrikaans, as a rooi roman, haarskeerder (“hair cutter”) or baardskeerder (“beard cutter”) because of its sizable jaws and the fact that it often cuts the hair of sleeping people and animals, using the hair to line its nest! It has even been reported that they have left bald patches on dogs, sheep and other animals.

Yes we know them as Red Romans.
This particular one is only about 25mm but I have seen them up to 55mm here.

I was lucky to have got that one out of the pool in time so he survived. Took about 45 mins in the sun to revive
