I was looking for moths under a lighted signboard when I spotted this big centipede (mukade) sucking the life out of a small moth. It seemed like I had just missed the moment of capture. I would have liked to watch how the centipede sneaked up on its prey.
Phylum: Arthropoda; Subphylum: Myriapoda; Class: Chilopoda
