Comments & ID Thoughts

I believe this is a pregnant Camel Spider. At first, I couldn’t even figure out it was a spider! It’s egg sack makes it look like some other strange animal.

Wow, she does look very gravid! She’s not a spider (Araneae) though, she’s an arachnid but in a different order – Solifugae (Windscorpions ).

Note to admin.: holding bin needed for Solifugae.
