To encounter a giant whip scorpion for the first time can be an alarming experience. What seems like a miniature monster from a horror movie is really a fairly benign creature. While called a scorpion, this arachnid has neither the venom-filled stinger found in scorpions nor the venomous bite found in some spiders.

Encased in a black plastic float frame with elasticity film which allows you to easily see both sides of your baby. The plastic film allows you to better see the physical characteristics of your critter while keeping them safe. You can open the frame but it will probably damage your new insect friend.

The Octogonal frame is approximately 5” x 5” x .08”

Whip scorpions or vinegarroons are in fact arachnids that have a similar appearance to scorpions. They do not possess a venomous sting and there are over 100 species of whip scorpions that have been discovered. Whip scorpions range in size from 25 to 85 mm in length. They have eight legs: the first two legs serve as the sensory organs, while the other six legs are for walking. They have clawlike pedipalps or pincers.
