Scorpion or Whip Spider -Whatever it is - it's big
This was by my foot as we were walking in the jungle at Sacha Lodge in Ecuador. When I asked the guide what this is by my foot, he replied whatever you do - don't move. He said it's not poisionous but the bite is extremely painful. Luckily I didn't move & luckily will never find out in person. If you ever see the 2005 movie King Kong - the insects in this movie are almost the same size what you will find here!
