These poor critters are some of the misclassified in the world. They get called whip scorpions or scorpion spiders most often, but really, they are another type of arachnid altogether, their proper name is Amblypygi, and they are neither spiders nor scorpions. They are, however, terrifying!
The next few photos are my group making a traditional flatbread from yuca (called cassava by english speakers, not to be confused with yucca, the desert succulent). First we washed the mud off the roots so we could grate them.
