How would you like to wake up to this guy in your bed? Our whip scorpion also known as a vnegaroon or uropygid, is a lot less harmless than he appears. Whip scorpions are nocturnal, carnivorous hunters that feed on insects, slugs, and terrestrial isopods. They are found in tropical and subtropical areas as well as Africa. Digging burrows with their pedipalps, they prefer areas that are dark and humid. Where did they get name “vinegaroon” from? They have glands near their rear that will release a combination of acetic acid and octanoic acid which smells similar to vinegar.
