Sonoran Whipspider

These elusive arachnids are neither spider, nor scorpion. Whipspiders rely mainly on vibration and touch to perceive the world around them. Two legs have evolved into "feelers". These long, antennae-like structures detect prey as they move about in caves or narrow crevices. Like scorpions, they have two claw-like appendages for capturing their live prey.

Truly one of the most unusual bugs, and they're non-venomous!

Paraphrynus carolynae (formerly Paraphrynus mexicanus) lives in Arizona and is seldom encountered.

Current specimens are large. No guarantee on sexes.
