The Alert Spider is a creature closely related to the Spike Spider and Wasp Spider, and more distantly related to the Blade Scorpion. Despite being called "spiders" they have much more in common with insects, including possessing six legs, though only the one body segment. Their naming originates from their single, giant eye, making them worthy of sentry duty. Those seeking to eliminate these creatures may either use blow darts or shock them with electricity.
The Alert Spider spends its life above the ground climbing over walls or ceilings. From this high vantage point, it is able to drop down onto unsuspecting prey without drawing attention to itself.
The creature is first encountered by Sphinx during his first journey into Uruk Castle, where a trio of them crawl upon a wall that he must climb, in hopes to reach the chamber which Set (in his Human disguise) is with his minions, transforming Prince Tutankhamen into a mummified corpse.
