DESCRIPTION AKA Whip scorpion or vinegaroons which are from the family Thelyphonidae. When threatened they emit a liquid which contains acetic acid ( which has a vinegar smell ). They have a similar appearance to scorpions but are non poisonous. They range in size up to 85mm and mainly feed on small insects including worms, cockroaches and crickets. They are mainly found in rotting logs and prefer dark humid underground burrows. They do not use their tail as a defense mechanism rather it is a sensory device to aid in navigation - like whiskers.
