The good thing is, we don't have to make any monsters up from our imagination as Mother Nature has furnished us with plenty! Here is just one of the creepiest, in my opinion.
Centipedes can evoke shivers among the bravest of naturalists. With their multitude of legs and wicked fangs, centipedes are ultimate killing machines. When their attention is directed toward humans, the results can be extremely painful. The Jurassic throwback Scolopendra gigantean from Peru clocks in at over 28 centimeters (12 in). This enormous crawling beast uses its powerful fangs to devour both insects and small vertebrates like lizards. While the animal controls pests effectively, a human can be seriously wounded by this potentially aggressive centipede. Few invertebrates on land can boast the combined size, aggression, and bite power of this fast-moving species.
I will admit to having a slight fear of centipedes, regardless of their size! One this size could make me really hurt myself trying to get out of the way!
Why don't we have coffee in the kitchen today? I'll throw together a peach cobbler to share!
