Did you know that throughout the history of Hollywood filmmaking the Vinegaroon, because of its creepy appearance yet harmless nature, has appeared in many classic films including Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom along side hissing cockroaches, emperor scorpions and tarantulas! How cool is that?
Sad to say my vinegaroon, Xeno passed away- so I buried her with her flowers from her enclosure. :( my guess it’s from old age bc vinegaroons typically live 4-7 years and who knows how old she was when she was mostly likely caught in the wild. I’m just happy I got to have her for a year and got to experience how much of an awesome arachnid she was! I definitely will get more in the future. RIP my beautiful girl #vinegaroon#arachnids#animals
Today's #arachnovember prompt is also not a spider! For those of you who are not yet acquainted, meet the Vinegaroon! These mighty arachnids are like little tanks. Their "arms" or Pedipalps have spikes all along the insides so they work like living nutcrackers. For anything they can't simply crush, they also spray vinegar-smelling acid from a gland on the base of their tail that can dissolve the shells of other bugs. On my end, I tried to do a more fun, stylized depiction of the creature and I'm pretty happy with it! #arachnid#arachnophobia#traditionalart#vinegaroon#cartoon
