So it doesn't have any venom, I don't care, just keep it the fuck away from me.

Also, good choice on the Box Jellyfish, the top reason why I hate the ocean.
Wasn't trying to prove anything, just that it wasn't a camel spider bite that made that hand like that (although it is disgusting).

I will admit that the whole "not a spider" thing was a bit pompous, I apologise.

And yeah, I just think that jellyfish are bloody terrifying creatures. I got stung scuba diving by a tiny jellyfish and that hurt like a *****, so I definately don't want to get stung by something that arguably will kill me.

Anything with 8 legs and poisoness... The spiders in England don't bother me AT ALL, but if we were in Australia then that would be a different story :S

But if insects don;t count then maby a bear or a deer... If they have their cub/fole (don't know how to spell it)then they won't hesitate to beat the shit out of you!

The picture you linked of the bite is from a spider with a necrotic venom, I can't name one at the moment
You're probably thinking of either the brown recluse spider or the whitetail spider, both have been connected with bites that can, in a minority of cases, result in necrotising ulcers.

Covered the majority of nasty things like Camel Spiders, so what about...

Fucking Piranhas!

Enjoy the nasty video. Do not watch if you're a sensitive little pussy.

yeah, thank goodness for the internet, now I never have to go outside and deal with the beautiful, majestic horror of nature.

Camel spiders at their largest have a 12cm leg span. That's under 5" in the old money. That's not a very big for a spider or spider-like critter at all... but keep in mind I'm Australian so my concept of what a 'big spider' is may well be different to yours.
XD don't worry, I'm aussie too, I'm just arachnophobic is all, so any size is too big. Don't forget tho, that's 12cm span that's width, not length, it's still gross.
lol it's good living in victoria tho, the worst I have to deal with are funnel webs and those big fat black house spiders. Tho I did find a red back the other day in my wardrobe so naturally I flipped my shit.

Camel spider, seriously I would crap my trousers so fast it wouldn't even be funny.

Also, those crazy large Japanese hornets.

Ultrajoe once told me a terrifying story [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/18.118413-The-Sydney-Funnel-Web-Unfair#2267154]. One of the Sydney Funnel Web. I think he created my greatest fear of any animal.

For me, well, I really fucking hate spiders, but I'm more scared of a T-Rex. Shame it's long extinct.
For something a little more real (that I could possibly meet, since ************ also lives in Hungary), you don't want this thing charging at you:
No f-ing way. That thing probably voted Jobbik.
Knew there was another reason I'm glad for not living in Hungary any more.
The pig in that photo was shot in the US by an 11 year old kid.
Oh. I heard about these. Apparently they're becoming a real problem in Texas [or thereabouts]. Not surprising, seeing as they look capable of eating a crocodile.

South African Giant Worm. 20 feet of oh-please-god-no. It wouldn't even have to kill me, I would die by shitting myself with fear.

I second lamprey, too.

I met one of those in a dream once. We had a nice conversation, then it bit a chunk out of my freakin leg.

On topic: No creature scares me, thus I'll have no problem meeting them.

Sorry to spoil the terror, but that's a known shop. The boars aren't too much smaller than that, though. They're supposed to be the most dangerous thing in North America you can legally hunt.

Can't see as a camel spider would be longer in body that it's full extended leg span.

Heh. Growing up we had a huntsman in the letterbox that was probably a good 18-20cm in leg span.

Pretty much all I can say, would be the deadliest ones, outside of Australia. Hell, the ones here aren't that imposing... Okay, apart from the king Brown or a pissed off Bull Roo.
