Thanks Zaidi!
I was wondering if it was a harvestman at first. The big pincer mouthpiece that huge compared to its body made think whip spider at first glance.

I'm not even sure what this is. Does not look like a spider. Closest thing i can think of is an Amblypygi . This wasn't found in a dark cave but was found hunting in bright daylight in the jungle floor.
Any ID anyone?
