You have nerves of steel ! I’ve only seen videos of this thing and it’s too much for me 😀

That centipede hunts rodents and snakes too! The spider had no chance 🙁
Yes, that’s the scary part indeed 😀 I’d flip a table. I’m surprised at how
fast roaches are and they always scare me, and this… this is 10X of that haha.

Oh damn. It goes through your living room. That… must be a nightmare. For me.
For you, probably not, you take pics of them and say they look like dragons 😀
