Watch Camel Spider Capture, Kill Millipede at ‘Warp Speed’

July 3, 2018 – This huge-jawed camel spider has honed in on a millipede for its next meal. This rare video is playing in real time—they’re just this fast! Camel spiders are not true spiders, but are eight-legged arachnids in the ordersolifugae. The swift hunters use serrated, pincer-like jaws, called chelicerae, to catch their prey. The millipede attempts to coil and protect its head, as the camel spider attempts to decapitate it. Like big cats, camel spiders kill their prey before eating it. They move quickly to avoid losing their catch to a competitor. The camel spider overcomes the millipede, and starts devouring its meal.
