Lots of Legs


This poor old centipede is missing a couple of appendages at either end but all its legs seem to be intact. Another reason for being careful when moving rocks in the yard!

Thanks Crafty Green Poet it is actually called a Multicoloured Centipede so I guess it lives up to it's name :)

Is that as big as it looks? I had a native centipede as a pet for a while and it was terrifyingly fast, so I decided to stay away from the really big species as pets.

Jedediah, it was about six or seven inches long. They are pretty fast and some of them have a pretty potent bite too so your instinct was pretty good! :)
