Whiptail Scorpion
Thought you might enjoy these pictures of a whiptail scorpion. They are fascinating and nasty looking bugs. And yes, they will shoot vinegar smelling stuff at you, I got it all over my hand while taking these pictures. Love your site!

    We live in Roswell New Mexico and we are getting vinegarones in the house all the time! Can you please let me know how we can get rid of these little bugs? They are very nasty looking and scary to my grandchildren! Thank you

    Can a vinegaroon go in a catatonic state before molting. This is my first pet like this.

    Is their vinegar-like stuff actual vinegar?
