Found a Bug??? Need some help to identify.
This bug was found in Dickinson North Dakota at our community center ( Pool, Workout area etc,). Many people come to work-out. Found it in June of this year. The bug is about an inch long maybe a little more, can move quickly, has two big fealer "arms’ in front that are alway moving, almost if it was or is blind. p.s. I no longer have the bug. Attached are two pictures Hope you can help identify the bug:
What awesome images of a Solpugid you have. We are convinced the close-up of the jaws will freak a few readers out. Solpugids are also called Sun Spiders or Wind Scorpions, and they are harmless unless you are a small arthropod.
(08/08/2006) Jaws of a Sun Spider
I just wanted to comment on how awesome that picture of the Sun Spider’s gaping jaws is! That had to be a really lucky shot! I also wanted to share two pictures of a Sun Spider I caught in my house (Phoenix area, AZ) the same day you posted those pictures. Hope you like them!
