Wow this looks like a cave spider. I don’t know anything about them

Yep! It’s an African Cave spider, also known as a tailless whip scorpion (Damon variegatus)! They are harmless and eat tiny insects, and unlike other arachnids, only have 6 legs, the other two have adapted into long feelers. This is an AMAZING find! Congratulations!

You know enough about them to identify them to species level? Our site specializes in order Aranae, we don’t know enough about order Amblypygi to ID them. Is your school still open or are you home schooling right now?

I honestly would have loved this when I was in high school. Except the part about maybe missing graduation. Are your parents trying to teach you stuff?
