GIANT VIETNAMESE CENTIPEDE
Scolopendra Subspinipes [Full Taxonomy]
This creature is the stuff of nightmares. Some have stated that when presented
with Centipedes in general that they get a severe case of the Heebie-Jeebies. I
contend that the Giant Vietnamese Centipede, which is very fast, very aggressive,
and delivers an extremely painful bite, in fact ARE the Heebie-Jeebies.
This one was acquired from Krazy8sInvertebrates at the NARBC Show
on September 9th, 2007. It is currently about 6" long but can be expected
to as much as double that.
I advise strongly against snuggling...
