And finally,


ALL centipedes will "bite" The venom apparatus, are the two front, modified legs. They can stab you with them. The bigger the centipede, the worse the bite. Some are dangerous enough to have antivenin available. For example, the Texas giant centipede (Scolopendra heros). A few people have been mortally bitten by them.

These are dangerous, antivenin is available. A bite by any large centipede, should be considered a medical emergency. Below are just a coupe of pics. Pretty self explanatory.

First pic is the venom apparatus of the Texas giant centipede, and head.

The next two, are a couple variations of the same centipede. See how large they can get? We have mostly the green variety where I live. I have seen them seven inches in length! They can be found anywhere.

I hope you all find edification in this "Dangerous Creatures" thread. These are animals I see, and work with on a weekly (sometimes daily) basis.

I am hopeful that you'll understand the importance of them to our environment. I hope this will be used as an educational tool by our SB family.

It was a lot of hard work, but I enjoyed doing it!

I hope you will enjoy it just as much as I did creating it.
