Vinegaroons are arachnids that are commonly found in tropical and subtropical regions worldwide. They have a unique appearance with a long, thin body and large, pincer-like pedipalps in front. Despite their name, they are not true scorpions, as they lack a tail and a stinger. Vinegaroons are generally shy and non-aggressive towards humans. When threatened, they may raise their pedipalps in a defensive posture and emit an acidic spray to deter predators. They are not venomous and do not pose a significant risk to humans, and can therefore be handled. Vinegaroons are resilient creatures that can tolerate a range of conditions within their preferred temperature and humidity ranges. These critters can grow up to 6 inches long from head to tail.
