I never knew such a thing existed! Sarah found it in a glass of water in her house.
It’s called a Pseudoscorpion (Dactylochelifer copiosus) and it’s really not so eww… In fact, it is actually quite helpful in your home as it preys on clothes moth larvae, carpet beetle larvae, booklice, ants, mites, and small flies.
It’s just a tiny little thing… this one was between 4 and 5 mm. Sarah put it in a petrie dish and under the microscope. I took the picture using a Nikon Coolpix camera right through the microscope.
Isn’t that cool?
