Scutagera

Uploaded by: ChrisAnthemum

Thursday September 5, 2013

Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Found this centipede relative on my front porch and caught it in a jar. We see lots of them inside the house; they collect wherever there's moisture and bugs which they eat. We also call them 'scooters' or 'walking eyelashes.' Scutagera coleoptrata; body is about one inch long. Used my macro lens on this.

Thanks for commenting, Peter and Julia! These critters are so delicate that it's hard to capture them without damaging them, and the creepiest thing about them is that if you mash them or sever any legs, the legs will continue to move in a wave-like fashion all by themselves. Now THAT gives ME the creeps!!!

Ok, now this one gives me the creeps, and I'm
not one easily shaken by bugs.

Good way to capture it...both ways.
