Re: Arachnids and other odd fellows...



Dear Skip,

What you describe fits the description of a large Solifugid, also known as
sun spiders or wind scorpions. There are about 800 species from the tropics
and subtropics including more than 100 from the American southwest and a
few species form Florida. Generally, they prefer arid environments. And
reasonsable invertebrate text should be able to give you more information
(Order Solifugae, Class Arachnida).

Cheers, Paul
