Hi Joe,
Your submission has us a bit puzzled. You are requesting an identification, but your photo was titled Vigaroon. There is a creature known as a Vinegarone, but this is not it. You have a Solpugid, commonly called a Sun Spider or Wind Scorpion. They are harmless predators with strong jaws but no venom.

    I find one of them suckers in my garage every year. Like one a year. My son found one just last night..it was the smallest one yet.

    I used to find them all around the house when I lived in Victorville. They used to scare the hell out of me when I didn’t expect them. They may not have venom but They can bite hard.
