I was searching the desert around my home in Ft. Thomas, Arizona in search of different scorpion species and I came across what looked like a scorpion just poking out from under a dead cactus branch. When I pulled the cactus branch up, poised with my specimen cup for swift collection, this critter with the body of a scorpion, no tail at all, and instead of pincers it had blunt stubs with bristles covering them. I then chased it down and when I dropped it into my 5 1/2 gal. glass tank, it climbed up the glass with it's bristled stubs (motion like climbing a ladder without using your legs) and bolted. I wish I could supply a picture but I had no time to snap a shot. If anyone could identify this for me and/or supply more information on this amazing creature I would greatly appreciate it. It has been stumping me for almost a year. Thanks.
