I’m a little disappointed in the quality of this picture, but even these small centipedes are pretty fast. Here’s a couple of interesting random facts about these arthropods: they’ve been around for somewhere around 420 million years and they always have an odd number of pairs of legs.
Centipedes are nocturnal predators that feast on pretty much anything they are physically able to. Earthworms seem to be pretty common for them to eat, but some of the larger species are known to eat vertebrates like reptiles and birds. If they are large enough, they can also inflict a painful bit to YOU!
