Peyton came over yesterday afternoon with his friends, Griffin and Tristan, to check on the Gulf fritillary caterpillars. They are very curious about EVERYTHING! Peyton lifted up the lid to our underground propane tank and came across this teeny-tiny arachnid on the lid. I checked this morning and learned that it's a pseudoscorpion. Yes, this arachnid species has poison in those little pincers to subdue prey, but heck, the pincers are so small that they couldn't do much to humans. This species can run backward, too! The boys and I saw this one do that.

Good thing they're so small and I only have to be pseudoscared of them.
