I just saw the weirdest freakin' insect ever. It was kind of a cross between a scorpion and a spider... had 8 legs plus these kind of claw things.

Insane.

I took some photos, I'm not sure if they came out or not.

Ohhhhhhhhhh... it's a vinegaroon spider (also known as a Whip Scorpion)!!! It's nasty! They creep me the hell out. The first time I saw one, I jumped back and crashed through the closet doors, and knocked 'em off the track. Scared me to death....

Looked it up. Wow... Kind of looks like what I saw, but a bit different. The one I saw was a little thinner. Thinner arms, legs and body. They're definitely related though.

You got all kinds of crazy bugs over there in Thailand/Burma/BelgianCongo where you live.

I posted these in my Tall Grass Prarie thread and forgot to copy them to this insect thread. First one is a chicada me thinks, and the second one is some species of grasshopper or cricket.

Yeah... the one that I saw was a little different as well. Lighter in color, and thinner... but, it was the same damn creature. And it scared the shit outta me.

There is a myth about the vinegaroon... it's not true though. If you're bit by one, you will taste nothing but vinegar for day. TOTALLY FALSE!
