So I found this creepy lil dude crawling on my throw blanket yesterday and I took a couple pictures before I killed him. I've never seen anything like it before so I was hoping someone knows what it is. I'm mobile and the picture might not show up as well but it has these lil pincher looking things on it. Any ideas would be appreciated.

It kinda looks like an ant, scorpion and spider all combined.

All I can see is a black blob of a bug... However as long as it's dead, I'm good.

Ohhh my god. I just googled this and they do look pretty similar if maybe the one I found was a baby one. The ones on google are so scary looking!
