I get a few of these around the house, this one was hiding in a pot. Is it poisonous? What is it?
Though this Solifugid is related to both venomous spiders and scorpions, it is a harmless creature that does not have any venom. Solifugids are sometimes called Sun Spiders or Wind Scorpions. Though lacking in venom, a large individual might deliver a painful bite if carelessly handled.
