I was working on a jobsite in an industrial park in Monroe Ohio, which is about 45 minutes North of Cincinnati, when this critter came lumbering out of the grass. It looked like it had the head of a spider, butt end of a whip scorpion, but six legs and walked with a bit of a waggle. There was no hopping, and moved at an alright pace, very straight forward across concrete. None of us had ever seen anything like it before, and this is the best picture I was able to snap. Please let us know!
