Centipede

This is a picture of the largest centipede we’ve ever seen. It was a little over 8″ long.

Here in Indonesia they are called kaki seribu (1,000 feet). From the picture we took, we estimate it to have around 300 feet. Wikipedia says the number of feet they have averages from 20 to over 300 feet, depending on the type of centipede.

Same centipede as in the picture on the left. When touched with a stick, they roll up.
