The House Centipede is holding the spider (L.variolus?) at a distance with its legs.

You have nerves of steel ! I’ve only seen videos of this thing and it’s too much for me 😀
Aw, thanks! I thought the spider was going to win. The centipedes are ridiculous-looking. They look like Chinese parade dragons. Far too flamboyant for something that just sits on my house foundation. The scary thing is how fast they can move, I think they have a land speed record. When something about an inch wide zooms across the living room floor, even the pets are too startled to react.
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 😀
