Amblypygi is the order of whip-spiders.

Amblypygi is in the wide range of Arachnids, which is a family of spiders, scorpions, whip scorpions, and mites.

Amblypygi normally can be from a few inches long to as long as your chair that you're sitting on right now (yes, those types of whip-spider normally live in Arizona, and even through they deliver painful bites, they are easy to exterminate, but are rare to find. Many people also scream when they see one.)
