: : I bet I know what it is, probably a pseudo-scorpion. They are tiny mite like insects which have pinchers, but no tail. A little bit of information abot them is here:

: : They do not bite or sting, and eat mites. They may make for an interesting pet; they would require pinhead crickets, if you wish to keep it in captivity

: : : I looked up crab spiders and got a few pictures. Crab spiders actually look like spiders. These things in their bathroom don't look anything like spiders. They have a tick-like body. Do crab spiders have long pinchers out front?

: : :We just recently found a tiny crab like bug in our bathroom and under a magnifier it has a body like a tick but only has 6 legs with long crab like pinchers does anyone have an idea what it could be. I looked up pseudo scorpion and they have 8 legs and the crab spider looks more like a spider than a crab.
