What Is So Special About The Sensitive Six-Eyed Sand Spider?

Sicarius hahni, sometimes known as the Six Eyed Sand Spider, is a medium-sized spider that may be found in deserts and other sandy areas in southern Africa. It is a member of the Sicariidae family, and close cousins of this spider can be found in Africa and South America on occasion, as well as in the United Kingdom. The Recluse spiders (Loxosceles) are its closest cousins, and they may be found all over the world.

The Most Lethal Ever Recorded

With its flattened stance and laterigrade legs, the Six Eyed Sand Spider is also known as the six-eyed crab spider or the six-eyed crab spider. In this spider's bite, the venom has been described as "the most lethal ever recorded." Although over 38,000 species of Six Eyed Sand Spider have been documented, it is estimated that there are approximately 200,000 species in existence due to the spider's exceptional ability to conceal itself.

A video about is getting viral on social media where it can be seen a pink-matt colored spider if burying itself in the sand. And people can't get over it.

Sicarius spiders are a genus of 'six-eyed sand spiders' that can be found in both South America and southern Africa, as well as other parts of the world. They're well-known on the internet for two things: Their venom and the way they bury themselves in the sand.

A Sicarius or Hexophthalma hahni, as seen in the video above, is a good illustration of how to use your eyes efficiently.

This spider conceals itself in the sand and strikes from ambush at prey that comes too close to its hiding place. When exposed to the elements, sand particles attach to the cuticles on their abdomen, acting as a natural camouflage. Whenever it is disturbed, it will flee a short distance before burying itself again.

Are Sand Spiders Dangerous?

Members of the genus Hexophthalma, notably Hexophthalma hahni, are referred to as six-eyed sand spiders in the English language. There are several species in the genus that have necrotic (dermonecrotic) venom, which can inflict serious or even life-threatening wounds in humans and animals.

Characteristics Of The Six-Eyed Sand Spider

The Six-Eyed Sand Spider is covered in microscopic hairs, known as setae (a stiff hair, bristle, or bristle-like process, or portion of an organism), which serve to hold sand particles in place as they move through the spider's web. It is possible to achieve good camouflage even if the spider is not completely buried.

The Six-Eyed Sand Spider has a body length of up to 0.6 inches (15 mm) and a leg width of around 2 inches across the body of the spider (50 millimeters). The majority of species range in color from reddish-brown to yellow, with no identifiable patterns. Often, Six-Eyed Sand Spiders use sand particles trapped between their body hairs to disguise themselves in order to fit into the background of their specialized habitat. Six-eyed sand spiders are shy and secretive creatures who will bite if they are accidentally approached.

Habitat And Webs Of The Six-Eyed Sand Spider

The Six Eyed Sand Spider is a desert spider that hunts by ambush rather than by weaving a web. It lives in the desert and has six eyes. It does not dig a burrow, in contrast to the majority of ambush hunters, such as the Trapdoor spider, Mouse spider, or Funnel-web spider. Instead, it buries itself only a few inches below the surface of the sandy soil.

Diet Of The Six-Eyed Sand Spider

The Six-Eyed Sand Spider does not travel in search of prey; instead, it just waits for a bug or scorpion to pass by before attacking it with its six eyes. It does this by seizing the prey with its front legs, injecting it with venom, and then devouring it. Six Eyed Sand Spiders do not require feeding on a regular basis; in fact, an adult Six Eyed Sand Spider can survive for an extended period of time without food or water.

Venom Of The Six-Eyed Sand Spider

To their advantage, this spider, like the Recluse spider, is a highly shy creature. However, toxicology investigations have revealed that the venom of this spider is the most poisonous of any spider studied. There is substantial debate as to whether or not this spider is a risk to humans.

It is a very secretive species that is unlikely to bite humans, and there have only been a few (if any) cases of human envenomation by this species. However, toxicology studies have revealed that the venom is particularly potent, causing blood vessel leakage and tissue destruction as a result of its powerful hemolytic (the breaking open of red blood cells and the release of hemoglobin into the surrounding fluid) and necrotic (accidental death of cells and living tissue) effects.

For the time being, there is no antivenom available for the bite of this spider, which leads many to believe that it is likely to be fatal if bitten by one of the other dangerous neurotoxic spiders (the Widow spiders, the Funnel-web spider, and the Brazilian Wandering spiders). There have been no confirmed bites in humans, and just two suspected bites have been reported.

However, in one of these incidents, the victim lost an arm as a result of significant necrosis, and in the other, the victim died as a result of massive hemorrhaging, both of which were comparable to the results of a Rattlesnake bite.

Conclusion

The Six-Eyed Sand Spider comes into contact with humans only infrequently, and when it does, it is almost never harmed by humans. Furthermore, like the majority of spiders, it does not always inject venom with each bite, and even when it does, it does not always inject a significant amount of venom.
