Whip scorpion on my hand

Vinegaroon walking on my hand
Vinegaroon walking on my hand

The vinegaroon had no problem walking on my hand when I hold it in front of it. Note how it uses its front pair of legs to feel around for a way out between my fingers.

Note that the vinegaroon can spray acid which might cause an allergic reaction. Don't handle whip scorpions unless you're sure what you are doing and know that you are not allergic to the acid mist it can spray in defense.
