Comments & ID Thoughts

Woke up to use the restroom. Slipped on my house shoes and heard a crunch. This spider happened to be inside. Not sure what kind of spider it is. Can anyone help me out.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This looks like a Wind Scorpion (Solifugae), they are arachnids but not spiders.
