Shape: Elongated, flattened, worm like

Habitat

Centipedes are nocturnal. They typically like areas of high moisture such as damp basements, crawlspaces, bathrooms and potted plants.

Threats

Centipedes are generally considered nuisance pests, as they do not pose significant health or property threats. However, all centipedes have poison jaws with which they inject venom into their prey. If handled roughly, some larger species can inflict a painful bite that can break human skin and causes pain and swelling, similar to a bee sting.
