Subject: what’s this bug?????
Geographic location of the bug: Baja Mexico, East Cape

Your letter to the bugman: I saw 2 of these strange bugs. They were in dark corners, on concrete surfaces, long antenna (2) and front crap/scorpion like legs as well as spider legs. The picture is after I sprayed the spider and moved it. It’s a little curled up here. Sorry for the shadows.

This was a harmless Tailless Whipscorpion, a shy nocturnal predator that will help keep your residence free of unwanted pests like Cockroaches. We try to educate the web browsing public about the marvelous creatures that crawl about, so we created an Unnecessary Carnage tag long ago to draw attention to creatures that have been needless dispatched because they looked scary.
