/ What is this?
I've no idea but I'd keep away from it as it looks terrifying.
try and touch it, let it bite or sting you and report back in 24 hrs telling us how you feel.
In the Scorpion family is my un educated guess.
It's a whip scorpion of some sort.
I've definitely seen one of them on a wildlife program before but I can't remember what it is called. My initial thought was a false scorpion but it turns out they don't have tails.
Tailless Whipscorpion or Giant Vinegaroon (Harmless).
Google is my friend
... i forgot to add, they are pretty harmless (non-venonous).
Sounds right, Wikipedia suggests it isn't going to have your leg off :-)
so that's what it looks like when you shave a squirrel...
Ooh a whiptail scorpion (Mastigoproctus giganteus) haven't seen one of them in a while.
