Pseudoscorpions!

Post by Nordue » Tue Jul 22, 2014 8:13 pm

  • I found one in my room today :shock:. At least they are not harmful to humans, and eat mites and similar.

    Have any of you guys seen or heard about them! They are in the Arachnida class with spiders, ticks, and mites.

  • They are a little strange to behold initially, yes! Especially because you can see their 'claws' with the naked eye!

  • Their small size makes them not as intimidating as a real scorpion could be, so maybe cute is a word to describe them :P. But not cute in my room, no thanks^^!

Looks kinda like a tick with long claw arms.. And so tiny! Thanks for sharing, I had no idea these guys existed!

I agree with you Tonbei, cute, but I wouldn't want one of these guys in my room either. XD I'm pretty chill about bugs but.. When they're in my room they go from arachnids to little nope invaders.
