Removed orphan tag[edit]

I have removed the orphan tag on this article, as the article is no longer an orphan - it's linked to by three relevant articles (Cerbalus, Sands of Samar (Fauna subsection) and List of Sparassidae species (Cerbalus section)). While three links is not a lot, this a species that lives in an area largely uninhabited by people, and has so little interaction with people that it was only recently described. It is therefore unlikely to be mentioned in many more articles.

It would be inappropriate to force the links into other possibly relevant articles in their current state (such as Wildlife of Israel, Wildlife of Jordan, Desert (Fauna), Xerocole, or Spider). Unless one of those articles is heavily reworked, or a list of Spiders of Israel or Jordon (or Desert spiders, etc.) is created, I don't see any new links to this species being generated. Overall, I don't see the value of keeping the orphan tag. Feel free to revert and discuss if you disagree.TimofKingsland (talk) 07:32, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

Preserving the desert[edit]

Aren't we trying to stop deserts from spreading? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:41, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Body length[edit]

Is there a more accessible source for body length? The article states that the smallest body length is 7.3", which is still longer than the leg span of 5.5"; yet the specimen in the photo obviously has a shorter body length than its leg span.--Robbstrd (talk) 13:38, 20 June 2015 (UTC)


I believe that this edit is incorrect. The size should be ~26 cm, not 2.6 cm. (compare to Hebrew wiki). — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:12, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
