@rosborne979,
we have vinegaroon spiders that look very much like that. Our first chelicerea were water dwellers in the Ordovician. Eurypterids, early canceraes, Limulii, and a bunch of others. Seems that vinegaroons and camel "Spiders" are another of the dry land "Living fossils"

Im interested in the SE Asian Amber deposits. Maybe time for a road trip.

@farmerman,
turns out that the ever photoshopped "Camel SPider" is a close relative.

@edgarblythe,
When the scientists popped a little air bubble they heard a little voice,

"Damn, mom warned me about amber!"
