Rare, but you'll never forget it as long as ya live.
I've seen em. Pretty radical. Stay AWAY. They are fast, very fast. And IF you manage to step on one you had better find a hose. Cause it's messy. REAL messy.

I have a friend that has a giant centipede like these as a pet. Very vicious! They are psychotic! Not a very good pet unless you are an experienced invertebrate keeper. Myself... I'll just stick with collecting tarantulas...
