Millipede


Millipede

I try to be a friend to all living things, and I promise you that I did not harm this thing in any way, but this giant (3 inch body, plus legs) ugly (just look at it) monster (aieeee!) produces a "KILLIT!" reaction in my brain that is tempered only by my unwillingness to touch such a monstrosity, even through an intermediate object like a shoe or rock.

Update - My friend Marybeth writes in and says this is "most definitely a centipede." I guess my entomology skillz are right up there with my mycology skillz. Wikipedia confirms, giving the order as "Scutigeromorpha".
