Nice! Was this wild?
Seen hundreds of them. But never that color or near this size. Amazing find!
Inverts are awesome!!!
That things got some jaws on it!
Nice spot, but you wouldn't catch me holding this one :)
Kudos to the person holding onto the scorpion!

Thanks everyone, another mystery solved.
May be The giant whip scorpion or vingaroonMastigoproctus giganteus http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thelyphonid...

Wow! Is huge! Very nice spotting!
It's a whip scorpion (Order Thelyphonida), but I don't really know which specie is...
Looks to be a water animal due to the whiskers... but not an expert in the least!
What is this? scorpion,insect or any water animal?.....
This is an amazing Insect.
