Comments: Whip scorpion


Read Whip scorpion.


hehe! I had one as a pet. Her name was Matiline. She was quite the charmer. Sadly my mom fumigated the house while i was at school and forgot her. They are so intriguing.

Hi Khimera,

I keep one as pet as well, and they are indeed intriguing animals. Before I moved to Mexico I had no idea that such animals even existed.

I have plenty of these in....my house. I live in the mountains of haiti, Carribean. and my wife did not want to believe that they are actually a type of scorpions

Will - the whip scorpion contrary to the suggestion in its common name isn't actually a scorpion. However, it does belong to the same class - Arachnida - as scorpions.

Had been looking up to find what was this when it was found in one of a wooden drum in the warehouse! And guess where am i from...Singapore! i wonder how this Arachnida found its way here to Asia!

@Lau - I guess the species you have seen is native to Asia?
