I have seen this bug in my bathroom (both times it was I the bathroom)) acouple of times in my home in Sihanoukville, Cambodia. The time of year is March and April. As it looks fearsome, I would like to know anything I can about it.

Whipscorpion

Dear Al,
Despite its fearsome appearance, this Whipscorpion is harmless since it has no venom, however its mandibles might have been capable of biting prior to its untimely demise, which is why we are tagging this posting as Unnecessary Carnage.  Whipscorpions are shy, nocturnal hunters that will help keep your bathroom and other rooms free of Cockroaches, Spider and Scorpions, and other unwanted visitors, which is why they are frequently tolerated in tropical countries.
