Can't impede this centipede!

This Giant Desert Centipede was seen on the Sabino scene on the cloudy and rainy September 23, 2016. Bill Kaufman writes:

They do have venom and can bite if interfered with, but the toxin is generally harmless to humans. It could be painful like that of a bee sting, however, and allergies are always possible. Leave them alone. They are nocturnal, so we were lucky to see this one. It was likely out due to the cloudy skies and rain. I count 42 legs.

Anne says: Don't try this move without supervision. Or better, super legs.
