If It can find a nearby object, A centipede will hide under it, surprising any victim who passes by. It has an animal body. It has no hands. A centipede is able to lay eggs. It is a carnivore.

I observed here, what I had often seen before, that certain districts abound in centipedes. Here they have light reddish bodies and blue legs; great myriapedes are seen crawling every where. Although they do no harm, they excite in man a feeling of loathing. Perhaps our appearance produces a similar feeling in the elephant and other large animals. Where they have been much disturbed, they certainly look upon us with great distrust, as the horrid biped that ruins their peace.
