sheesh, looks like it's from a resident evil or sci-fi game
Apparently people keep these as well. Crazy looking critters to say the least.

yeah lol. I think this belongs in the arachnid section though.
I kinda want some now...although I'd probably be spending like 10 hours a day observing these intriguing creatures.

Edit: found out they're harvestman...Opiliones. Strange, I could've sworn I saw a species of these at my house back in the day when we moved in...I was also creeped out by them and killed them Shocked
I could definitely be wrong, but I saw a few of them hang around my backyard where there was dripping water.

Found a nice thread about them on Arachnoboards: http://www.arachnoboards.com/ab/showthread.php?t=131820&page=2
Check out the pic of that giant one!

I wish I could post the sound I made when I saw that picture in the first post.

Venom, check the thread on AB -- there's some good pics there (where it actually looks like an opilones).
