I just realized something about Whiptail…
It was probably really obvious, though; I’m not exactly the fastest to pick up on things. u_u
I’m not completely high, right? There’s definitely some literal resemblance here.
Also for your consideration:
A vinegaroon, also known as a whip scorpion (that tail!), and
a book scorpion (those pedipalps!).
Alright, I’m done being a dumb bug nerd now.
