Lost Empires of Faerûn
This human-sized, spiderlike creature has a long, flat body and six spindly legs. Two more legs held close to its mouth end in spiny pincers. Two long, whiplike appendages emerge from the creature's body just behind its pincer-legs.
A giant whip spider measures between 6 and 8 feet long and weighs about 200 pounds. Despite the impressive appearance of its whiplike appendages, they are simple feelers that the creature uses to probe into fissures and other areas it can't see.
Sages sometimes refer to giant whip spiders as monstrous amblypygids, but this term is not commonly used.
