Okay, so today my co-worker, Rodney, and I were talking about weird looking creatures and such after an e-mail he'd received about this funny looking mole rat. Then he asked if I'd ever seen the Camel Spider, to which I replied "no". He pulled up some information on the internet to show me how enormous they are, picture and all, and went on to tell me how they run up to 30 mph, they scream, burrow into camels' chests to stay cool from the hot desert sun. He was so serious, it was hilarious! I didn't believe it for a second-I mean, wouldn't everyone know about such creatures if they did in fact exist??? If you look at the picture closely enough, you can tell that whoever took the picture held it close up to the lens to make the spider look bigger. They are real, but none of those myths (that he believed) were true. We found an accredible website with all the correct information on them. They are big, but more like six inches, not 4 feet. Needless to say, he was a bit disappointed when I was able to prove him wrong. Poor little fella. Below is the picture he showed me when he was trying to prove their existence.
Being the prankster that I am, I couldn't help but create a few photos of my own. btw, the Milky Way bar was the only thing I had on hand while at work today.
He was looking at the guy's leg in the background and comparing the spider to him. If you look to the right, you can see the other guy's shirt sleeve and part of his hand.
My model's name is Jaylie. Great pose girlfriend!!!
"That candy bar is freakin' huge!"
We were both laughing so hard taking these shots. I almost peed my pants!
Rodney was in denial at first. He just couldn't believe that he had been duped. That's what prompted these photos to begin with. To show him how easy it is to make things look larger than they really are. ha ha, thanks for the laugh, Rod!
