Whip Spider

One of the most bizarre creatures we’ve seen is this whip spider. If you would stretch it out it easily measures over half a meter because of its very long legs. The two front legs are not really legs but sensors, so this typical spider walks on 6 legs instead of 8.

They’re not poisonous, but they can create painful wounds with their claws, which are arm like extensions at their front side.

We found this one under a stone structure we wanted to remove.
