Scorpion Impersonator
We found this strange but here in Phoenix Arizona. We see bark scorpions all the time and realize this is not a scorpion. The question is. At first glance when quickly passing this spider looked like a scorpion – is it attempting to mimic in some way or did it just loose some legs? Do you know what kind of spider it is?
Thanks!

Your Huntsman Spider, one of the Giant Crab Spiders, has lost two legs. These hunting spiders are shy, usually found at night, and are harmless to people.
