I found this creature dead in my room in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. Please could you help me identify it? Is it poisonous? I’ve seen this once previously in my garden.
This Arachnid is known as a Tailless Whipscorpion, and though it resembles its venomous distant relatives the Scorpions and Spiders, it is not venomous itself.
