  • The canyon spiders in Guild Wars 2 are modeled after Solifugae, an order of arachnids that are not actually spiders at all. Like spiders, and all arachnids, Solifugae have eight legs. Unlike spiders, they have a pair of pinching mouthparts, with no fangs and no venom. Solifugae are often known as "camel spiders, "sun spiders", and "wind scorpions". There are many myths about their size, speed, behavior, and the level of danger they pose.
