Hey there. I have seen this unusal bug for the first time today and i am quite intrigued by its behaviour. It behaves like a scorpion by raising its hind parts and usig the front two claw like things. I would like to know which species this bug is. Thank You for the help.

Dear Revanth,
Commonly called a Sun Spider or a Wind Scorpion, this Solifugid is a non-venomous relative of both Spiders and Scorpions that is classified in the order Solifugae.  Your individual looks very different from North American Solifugids.  We found a similar looking individual from India, that is not identified beyond the order level, on the Animal Photo Album site.


Location: New Delhi, India
