I believe this is a Scutigera coleoptrata...Also known as a 'House Centipede'. Link Though it looks like some of it's legs are missing, or just stuck together due to whatever nastiness it was swimming in, inside the toilet bowl

It looks like the dreaded CIA rump worm.

It comes up through the toilet, leaps onto your rear, and, well, enters your body from behind. There, it migrates to your head and takes over control of your mind.

Sort of like a toilet Go'a'uld.

It's a drowned silverfish missing some legs.

What compelled you to take it out and snap a picture of it? Flush it down. Gross.

Hahah des


It looks a little like a bug and a little likea fish.
Lets do Latin..

cloaca -ae f. [a sewer , drain].

cimex -icis m. [a bug].

allec or alec -ecis n. [fish].

So folks we have ourselves here a cloaca cimex allec

-don't be afraid, they're harmless and quite tasty

I believe it is this :

scutigere coleoptrata



Although i am not sure if you have these in the USA, here in France in certain areas we have quite a lot and they are quite common in old stone houses.

I cought one a couple of years ago and put it in a pot with a common housefly to see how it would react... definately a carniverous little bugger... ripped the fly to pieces and ate it very quickly...

The one you have posted is definately bloated (i have seen this in our bath after coming back from long holidays as we often put plants in the bath with a little water and the legs were sort of fused together because of the water and decomposition (some legs had dropped off)).

Although this little critter is fairly harmless and will run very fast when you approach it, in French Guyana they have a giant version that can grow up to 30 cm that has a very nasty bite (venom contains neuro toxins that can be deadly to small animals and babies).

Hope this helps?

Kindest respects

It looks like one of those squirmy worm things one used to be able to make with goo and a die-cast mold. Think Mattel sold them. One was for making army men too.


The thing in the toilet is definitely not a silver fish. And it doesn't have nearly enough legs to be a centipede; not buying the matted leg theory. It's also appears translucent, unlike any centipede I have ever seen.

Many people here on ATS know what my job is, so please posters take into consideration that i DO know what i am talking about! I will be happy to answer U2Us when i have time.

Funnily enough last year i actually swatted one that was crawling across my face and trying to enter my mouth at around 3 in the morning.... made a right mess with those legs still wiggling around and tickling my lips! (a bit like a Daddy long legs,) when you splat the little bugger it's legs keep moving!... YUK!

People... if you have not eaten yet, care to take a look at the videos that follow :



YUM YUM....

Or this :



YEP... That is what you have in your bog and could eat your bum!
Take a minute or two to check out those liitle jaws he/she has...

Kindest respects

Yes, these are quite common in the US. House Centipedes. And Tropics was right, good call.

I had lived in a house with lots of forest behind it, so we had lots of these guys. They often come out at night. I was fortunate enough to never have one crawl on me as far as I know and I believe they eat spiders. All that being said, they are demonic evil monstrosities of a creature. Whenever I saw one, it was when you would turn the light on and it would just be there. In the bathroom, on the wall, in the shower, scurrying across the floor.

They are fast. And disgusting. I hated trying to get those buggers cuz if you didn't get um the first try you were in for a hunt.

Oh, and they can live submerged under water for quite some time.

Luckily I moved and have never seen one since.

What you have a photo of is actually not a silverfish it is a "House Centipede"
They are found living in older homes, barns, rotted wood etc..

House centipedes are sometimes referred to as silverfish but this is false.
House centipedes are an entirely different species.

With that said, what was found in the toilet IS a silverfish.
They live on carb's starches and sugars.

Propably just fell in while getting a drink.
