My friend found this and we dont know what it is. hoping you can help?
This arachnid is a Solifugid, commonly called a Sun Spider or Wind Scorpion, but unlike their distantly related namesakes, Solifugids do not have venom so they pose no threat to humans. They are fierce hunters though, and any small insects, arthropods and even vertebrates can be considered prey.
