I found this weird looking thing and cant figure out what it is. Found it in the sierras in the US.
After a few more searches, i think this is a sun spider or camel spider. Scary stuff
nice weird looking critter
Looks like someone put a spider and a grasshopper together and they made 'sweet love down by the fire'. This is their baby. As if spiders weren't fast enough, now they've gone and streamlined them.
I wouldn’t even get close enough to take the picture. That’s a freaky looking bug.
Hello, off the jump I would say that it is not an Arachnid due to the fact that all arachnids (spiders) have 8 legs... It has been a few years since schooling and I will have to do a little digging but thanks for sparking the creative challenge
Do a google image search or sun or camel spiders and youll see
I'm a bug person. And those are sun spiders. They're fascinating creatures and have one of the nastiest bites. Super cute though!
But they're not bugs. In the Aracniae family.
Thank you for your input RIO,
I have been mistaken before and this certainly won't be the last.
Yes. Well I seem to learn something new everyday. 8 legs connected to abdomen. The elongated pedipalps got me.
Thank you all for the educational entertainment
You're welcome! I love spiders and insects. Except for daddy long legs. Not the spider ones. Creepy a
If you have any more questions I'm happy to help. I'm the tarantula lady.
