I live in Texas. And that automatically means I have to deal with all the creepy crawlies as it is. So I don’t need to hear about worse things to be concerned about…
This is what nightmares are made of. It’s like a mixture of a scorpion, spider, and crab or something. I am NOT for it. At all. Please make it go away.
These have recently been spotted a lot in Texas due to the excess rain pushing them out of their burrows. Supposedly if you see one, just leave it alone and it shouldn’t bother you. But I have trust issues.
These are called vinegaroons, but their nickname is ‘whip scorpion’. But they aren’t actually scorpions at all.
These creepy little things can aim well, and spray 85% acetic acid from the base of their tails as a way of protection. But lucky for us, they are said to not be poisonous. (But they DO pinch…)
They are also said to eat scorpions, millipedes, crickets and cockroaches. So, I guess, technically we’re supposed to like them…I just wish they looked less intimating.
