"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
oh, thank you, thank you very much for that, now i'm never going to sleep again...you should at least post this to make up for it.
Great, the spider in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire movie was a real creature after all. Just what I needed to know. Yeesh.
I've only heard them called 'whip scorpion,' and the first time I saw one was the first and last time I watched Fear Factor. I vaguely remember it being a casino-themed episode, but vividly remember watching a woman eating one of these beasts.
There is a difference between whip spider/scorpions like this-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whip_spiderand the critters more commonly called whip scorpions -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whip_scorpion
@turtle, what a charmer! Who is he?And how big is the whip spider (she asked tremulously)?--Swift Loris
Good to know I'm not the only reader here who thinks instantly of Harry Potter when seeing these.
