I was looking for beetles under the bark of a rotten tree when this long-legged centipede ran out = quite a surprise! I guessed it was harmless enough so I caught it and took a few photos. Later found out that it is sometimes known as a house centipede (geji) and some people regard them as beneficial creatures because they eat things like cockroach nymphs. However, with its long legs and high speed, I think most people would try to squash it if they saw one in their house!!
