Centipede

Centipede

I saw this centipede this afternoon on the concrete tracks through the orange groves; it makes a change from snakes and mantis. I don’t usually carry a craft knife round with me but it was useful when trying to indicate the size of the creature. It’s quite different from the centipedes that come into the house (and which are scientifically classified with a different order and family) and hide in corners and crevices. The house centipedes are not venomous but I haven’t been able to find out whether this one is.
