Vinegars are about 3 inches long and are relatively mild, unless you bother them. They can pinch with their heavy mouthparts (pedipalps) and shoot a well-targeted spray of acetic acid (vinegar) at 85% of the base of their “whip” to protect themselves. Anyway, these awesome guys reminded me of a subreddit that I particularly enjoy called Animals I Didn’t Know Existed. Here the redditors are posting all kinds of weird, scary and amazing creatures that we sure didn’t know existed. Let’s see a few, would you like?
