A giant whip spider tries to grab prey in its pincers and hold it close to its mouth to feed.
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.
