The centipede is an arthropod that has 1 pair of legs per body segment. Exclusively predatory, centipedes usually eat anything that is soft-bodied and within a reasonable size range. However, the Amazonian giant centipede (also known as scolopendra giganta) is so large, it’s been observed eating spiders, bats and even rodents! Now that’s a BIG centipede! However, centipedes also have a number of predators that feed on them, some exclusively! Centipedes can be found in all kinds of environments, and some can even be potentially harmful to humans due to their poisonous bites! Although a bite to an adult human may be just painful, those that have allergies to bee stings should take care to get medical attention if bitten by a centipede.

You can get a great specimen of a REAL, honest-to-goodness centipede mounted in a clear acrylic block. Get an up close and personal look at this! Students and teacher alike will be in awe of its long, leggy body, as well as get a good lesson in insect body structure in the process! Great for looking at details under a microscope, or for having in the classroom, this is a great educational resource for the young science student or for the serious entomologist!

Actual size of block is 4.25in x 1.75in x 1in (10.8cm x 4.4cm x 2.5cm)
