(BIG) Bug… Jeepers….

Asked Entomologist friend about this bug and here's what he said:

“I think it's an Amblypigid or tail-less whip-scorpion.The first pair of walking legs are highly modified into very long antenna-like sensory appendages (whips). They hunt at night, walking sideways with the ‘whips’ extended, and when prey is encountered, it is grabbed with the raptorial spiny pedipalps sticking out in front of the body.”

Jeepers indeed.
