    Ugh, thanks for ruining my morning Bruce and Tamara. Bleh, those things make my skin crawl.

    I had a centipede in my paph once, it crawled out when I watered it and disappeared into the darkness...creeped me out because I keep my plants indoors!

    I wasn't going by size. I have the rounder ones. I was just stating that they were not as huge as in the one picture that was posted. Thanks for the science lesson, though.

    Absolutely! There is an unquestionable beauty to them -- an elegance and efficiency of design that has withstood the test of not mere millenia but rather millions of years essentially unchanged. Truly a magnificent creature.

    I can see your point Pavel, and I will not argue with you. I know that they serve a purpose but dogbiteit if your new pet ends up in my house I hope you have life insurance on it!

    Ok I'll make you a deal Pavel , you can have all the ones I find here but you have to come catch them . If I get too close , like Tamara I will kill them , it's just who I am .
