1. What's his name?

Is he house-broken?

2. Sting. I think he is in a rock group. Rock group = not housebroken.

4. I'm glad I don't recognize it. WHAT is it?

I trust they don't get into houses very often? Shudder.

Solid-toed shoes are best.

10. I thought they were dark and that thingy he's dragging behind him had a stinger on the end.

Can't draw a visual picture very well, can I?

I've never seen them that light...particularly, the legs. Strange creature.

11. They come in all colors and sizes.

 

There's one I heard of recently that is black and 8" long! Gah. South America someplace.

The ones we have around here are smaller than this, and dark; there's also one that is much smaller and translucent, and reportedly very dangerous.

The tail does have a stinger on the end. When not threatened the tail lies flat but if defense is needed it curls up over the back and stings whatever is right in front of the creature. They can sting multiple times.

As I said, no flip-flops.

ETA: Arachnid family, like spiders.

12. Those would give me pause during those barefoot trips to the bathroom in the dark.

Those are nightmare material. Glad I live in Iowa.

13. I hear you.

 

I'm from the high country in Colorado and we never had to deal with anything like this!

7. This would be a Scorpion. Pretty common in Tucson but I have never seen one this big.

6. Send it to Kali. Properly placed, she's found they keep guests from using too much toilet paper.
