Funky neighbour

I spent some time in Sayulita - Pacific coast in Mexico. The shower was located outdoors and soon enough I learned that I'm not the only one who's using it. I've got a neighbour - this weird creature from the shot. First, I was afraid that it's some sort of venomous and dangerous animal, however after searching I discovered that the creature is called whip spider (or tailless whip scorpion) and that they are absolutely harmless for humans. Well, we livid in peace ever since and shared the shower every day.
