Not As Bad As It Looks
This is a tailless whip scorpion and despite its name, it is not going to do you any harm. If you mess with it, the worst it can do is pinch you with those spiky pedipalps. It belongs to an order of invertebrates called amblypigids which means 'blunt rump.' Rather personal I would say but it is merely to highlight the lack of tail.
