A fast and aggressive predator, this Malaysian Cherry-red Centipede (Scolopendra dehaani) can reach over 20cm in length and can consume prey as large as a mouse. Like other centipedes, its first pair of legs are modified to deliver a painful venom which is effective both in subduing prey and in defense. Penang, Malaysia.
