While adamantly searching for what this creature could possibly be (to no avail), I found an entire world of arachnids that I knew absolutely nothing about. I only knew of most arachnids by name, not by sight. However, after extensive investigation, I have had my eyes opened to many gorgeous organisms, including whip-spiders (order Amblypygi) and now I’m enamored! The species within this order neither sting nor bite. They live in the tropics and prefer small, dark places, such as caves, under logs, and in leaf litter. Some species have a legspan that can reach up to 60 cm. The pedipalps (awkwardly bent set of appendages in front of their faces) are specially adapted to catch and hold onto prey, much like the forelegs of a mantis.
