New neighbor

Walked out into the garage at my new place last night...almost stepped on this:

I saw it move and managed to miss it...and then ran whimpering in the other direction. I thought it was a scorpion! It's hard to tell in the picture but it was about 2.5 inches long. Eek!

I went back to look (and luckily had my phone) and got a picture. Not a scorpion turns out. No pincers. I have been informed by my dad and brother that it is a Wind Scorpion. Which is not actually a scorpion. I have no clue. Just nod along. They are not poisonous but apparently have a really nasty bite so i'm glad I didn't step on it!

Needless to say, I will be treading more carefully from now on.
