This insect is very odd, is it a spider?

Hi Gavin,
Though it is common called a Sun Spider in North America and a Camel Spider in the Middle East, this Arachnid is not a true spider, but a Solifugid, a member of the order Solifugae.  Though formidable predators, they are not dangerous to humans as they do not have venom.
