Today, however, I'm feeling a little wigged out. As I was doing laundry, one of these nasty creatures wriggled out of some folds of cloth:
It appears to be some sort of desert centipede. From cursory investigation, it does not seem to be poisonous. They don't bite, but they do pinch. Regardless, it's not something I want creeping around my house, especially when there are 2 tender children about. The one I found was about 4 inches long.
It reminds me of the two camel spiders we found in our apartment a couple weeks ago...Normal spiders don't bother me, but these things are freaky just because they're so HUGE. Again, I don't think they're poisonous, but they can bite.
|This picture shows two spiders connected, but they're still big!|
I'm just praying we don't ever find any snakes, because that--that would legitimately freak me out.
