Went on the levee behind my house to look for some herps. I turned over a rock and saw this weird thing. It wasn't a spider and I don't think it was a Jerusalem cricket(to violent and small to be one). It attacked a piece of grass rapidly and had no claws. Unsure what it is. Sorry for the cruddy pictures.

Description from Wikipedia

Solifugae is an order of animals in the class Arachnida. They are known variously as camel spiders, wind scorpions, sun spiders or solifuges. The order includes more than 1,000 described species in about 153 genera. Much like a spider, the body of a Solifugid has two tagmata: an opisthosoma (abdomen) behind the prosoma (that is, in effect, a combined head and thorax). At the front end, the prosoma bears two chelicerae that, in most species, are...
