Whip Scorpion

Not a true scorpion an arachnid called a whip scorpion because of its whip-like tail, which is a sensory organ. Also known as whip spiders and scientifically referred to as Amblypygids. Its front legs have been modified to act as very sensitive antennae-like organs. These appendages can often get broken when purchasing whip scorpions in the post, so it has only six walking legs. They have front pinchers like a scorpion to grasp their prey but no sting, although they can spray an acid mix from glands at the end of there abdomen. Found in tropical and subtropical regions
