I think its cool. I like studying creatures like that. And btw, the large scorpions aren't going to kill anybody. Their stings hurt, but they won't really damage you. Its the tiny ones you have to watch out for most of time. The tinier, the more deadly (generally).

Its no wonder this reminds people of spiders or ticks. They are all a part of the arachnid family.

That's kind of how I feel about it. It's sort of... interesting, although not cute. I'd feel much differently if I saw it in person than as a picture on my computer monitor, though.

D'awwww <3 But, I keep scorps/tarantulas/etc. as pets, so don't look at me.

Also incredibly cute -

Centipedes cuddling their eggs <3 and babies..

Cute, no... but isn't really creepy or gross to me. Only because there are of course no scorpions in MN, so I don't have to worry that one is going to jump out and attack me now

If that were a spider or centipede or basically any other insect, I would have thrown this computer across the room and ran away LOL.

I agree with blue except for the neat part.

I think any creepy crawly things are awful. They make my whole body feel gross, and just...ugh!!
