Tanzanian Blue Leg Centipede

The girls are already in bed tonight, and they just missed a little excitement! I saw something scurry down the hall way toward the door that goes to the back porch. It took me a second, and a double take!, before I realized it was a Tanzanian blue leg centipede.

I yelled for Matt, of course! He grabbed the large Rubbermaid container from the sink that we had just eaten leftover chicken pot pie out of and caught this guy!

If you want to see him in action, click here to watch our video on YouTube! Warning: he’s definitely bigger and freakier in the video!

    Eeeek! What did you do with it? Is it poisonous? How come Matt didn’t eat that last pea from the chicken pot pie?

      It’s in my freezer now! All centipedes are at least slightly venomous, and how sensitive a person is determines how much trouble this one will give. I don’t want to find out how sensitive anyone is!
