"scolopendra gigantea robusta", is the stated name in the description of the video. Anyway, watched the whole thing, and I'm really glad they don't get much bigger than that....I hope.

That guy who owns that thing must be a bit weird in my opinion. That thing is creepy and dude doesn't like it when people tell him that because he just deletes the comments that viewers leave behind.

If I saw that thing man I would freak on it with a shovel.

We're supposed to love all God's creatures; but I would have a field day on that thing with a shotgun! That thing is too ugly to survive, just like Lyle luvvitt.

Most definitely... But you'll have to bring out the big guns for this one. That's one nasty "bug"!

Yeah baby... Or maybe you'll just agitate it with a shotgun... Maybe something bigger? Just to be on the safe side!?

Funny thing. The first I heard about a giant centipede was two days ago, when someone told me a centipde teh size of my arm prayed on bats in caves, hanging upside down and then attacking them. I freaked, naturally.

And now, since I am almost about to go to bed, I WILL NOT watch those videos. Not a chance in hell. But you guys have fun freaking yourselves out. I'll get round to doing it tomorrow, before Ive eaten, preferably.

And a shotgun? You'd take that risk? M1A1 Abrams main battle tank, or a HE rocket propelled grenade. Nothing else. I can only speculate on the actual size through.

The size of bugs like that are determined by the amount of oxygen in the atmosphere. So that's why I'm not about to go wandering around in the rainforest. Just imagine though, soon, relatively speaking, when the Earth's temperatures rise enough to melt ice caps and create rainforests around the world, more oxygen in the atmosphere, BIGGER CENTIPEDES!!!!!!

The last home I was renting had a large empty field directly behind it. We had some of the biggest gaddang Black Widows I have EVER seen! In all seriousness the legspan on one particular spider I killed was at least as big as a silver dollar with an abdomen the size of a nickel.

YUCK!!!

With Spiders (in America) the larger they are, the safer they are...(except the painful nonlethal bite of the tarantula)
it is the little ones that will kill ya though...

Now as to this centipede... Help a buddy out here... WHERE ARE THESE FOUND?
I know they dont get that big here, but where does that happen?

I saw something similar to what happened in the video on Animal Planet or something like that. Steve Irwin was videotaping a giant centipede attack a small lizard and the lizard shared the same fate as the poor mouse.

There was great footage of these guys on the BBC's 'Life In The Undergrowth' -



The giant bat-eating centipede is the most formidable invertebrate predator of all.

These highly aggressive creatures inhabit caves in Venezuela and can grow to 13 inches long.

They feed on bats by scaling vertical walls and capturing them while hanging upside down from the cave ceiling – behaviour that has been filmed for the first time in Life In The Undergrowth.

JESUS WEPT!

"Love all God's creatures"?... How about no?! I'm not nearly insane enough to love that thing!

Poor mouse... I hate watching mice being eaten because I have a pet mouse and I hate the thought of something as vile as that giant centipede feasting on him!

*cringe*
