Tailless Whipscorpion

Dear email,
You have discovered a harmless Tailless Whipscorpion.  Despite its fierce appearance, and its distant relatives and namesakes, the venomous true Scorpions, the Tailless Whipscorpion has no venom.  It is a shy nocturnal hunter that will help to rid your home of other undesirables, like cockroaches.
