Phrynus decoratus

Tailless whip-scorpion time! Arguably some of the most underrated groups of animals that I know of. Nonvenomous is the way of life for these guys! Utilizing those spikes along the forearms to impale potential prey items.
It's the attack of the super spiny fast bugger that is scary looking but quite harmless to anything bigger than itself and likes dark empty places like my head during a math test.
 
God that’s a beautiful specimen. Shame that they aren’t as common, it’s like keeping a T combined with a praying mantis.
