I just found one of these bad boys in my house – about as big as a quarter. Only the second one I have found, in about 6 years. Haven’t seen a “real” scorpion yet! They are also known as wind spiders, camel spiders, and solpugids. This one was just lying in my entryway, kind of lethargic. It was much fatter than the one I found a few years ago. Then I read this:
And if food is available, a solifugid will keep eating until its abdomen is so distended that it’s practically immobile.
