Centipede on a Stick

I believe this is the giant red-headed centipede (please correct me if I'm wrong). These suckers get to be 8" in length and are known to be aggressive hunters. Thankfully, they aren't found in California. Rather, they inhabit Arkansas and several other nearby states in the US.

If you're looking for a way to induce vomiting, then watch some of the videos on YouTube of these centipedes eating mice. It's a great weight-loss program.

Whoa! These things were featured in Peter Jackson's King Kong except much, much bigger and more computer generated. :)

Ya, I'm grateful these things don't get much bigger than they already do.
