    "tick-scorpion"?

    We were having our "Secret Santa" party tonight at work and one guy brought in a big box of imported Asian Pears. They were softball sized - mine was 2lbs! lol

    Anyway Loan grabbed one and she showed me this bug which was crawling on it that looked like a tick but it had two big scorpion or crab like pincers. I'd never seen anything like it and all of a sudden the other girl Xeng blew it onto the floor and stomped on it so I didn't get a chance to catch it and take a pic.

    Any idea what it was?

    Sounds like some form of Pseudo-scorpion

    oooooo my mom was in a hotel once and saw one on her towel, she got a video, it was so cool. We researched them a little bit and apparently they eat dust mites and like moist places... lol

    I saw a whip scorpion in Mexico that was as big as my torso with its legs outstretched. Scary!
