I have no problems with creepy crawly critters, but my way of thinking is that if a bug is much longer than about an inch or so, well .... it's just not right
This Giant vinegar-shootin' critter is an interesting one, however. Never even heard of one. To be honest, I thought it was going to be a joke. Then I went, "ewwww! That's just not right!" LOL Glad they live with you and not me.
We do have some scorpion's, some of our black widow spiders get a little big for my taste, and an occasional praying mantis wanders through here, but all in all, we try to keep our buggy critters small. Unfortunately, the mosquitoes make up for it
One of the interesting things in this area. The Giant Vinegaroon.
It is pre-historic looking with it's 'armored' body; front pincers;
long waving legs in front, and a long scorpion like tail in back.
Adults grow between 3 and 6 inches in length.
Absolutely harmless to people or pets. Nocturnal and burrows
in the ground. Slow moving. Feeds on insects.
If disturbed, it will spray a 85% concentrate of acetic acid (vinegar)
from the base of it's tail. Dogs learn quickly. Some people may
be allergic to vinegar and should not handle these 'bugs'. They
are easily raised as pets in acquairium like tanks.
This one was out during the day, and I 'captured' him with the digi.
It was aprx 4 inches from pincers to tip of armor at tail.
