Last week's Sepia Saturday introduced you to Ruckus' friend, the mild-mannered lizard. This week, he's dealing with his arch-nemesis, the centipede! Well, when the centipede has been sepiafied, it doesn't look so nasty, does it...Actually it does. Please look away if you are trying to eat something!

I had previously thought that centipedes and millipedes are poisonous to humans, and even canines. But, after consulting my good friend the Internet, they aren't so dangerous after all. Just mildly irritating. Maybe a few more encounters will turn these little buggers into an accepted friend of Ruckus!

Happy Sepia Saturday!

    PeeEss...Mama says, nice crisp photo tho :-)

  2. EW!!!!! Are the centipede's there really that big????? That's horrid!!
    Happy Sepia Saturday.

  3. Oh Ruckus, you don't want to be friends with that creepy crawler!

  4. Yuck! He can just keep crawling...

  5. Yikes!! That is kinda creepy Ruckus!

  6. Yuck!!! That thing gives me the creeps even in a photo! Even if it's not dangerous, I would still stay away if I were you!

  7. Do they really have 100 legs? I tried counting them in the photo but my eyes started crossing ;) I don't think I would be friends with it Ruckus. I prefer lizards!

  8. Yikes anything with more than four legs is not to be trusted in our book. Have a super Saturday Ruckus.
    Best wishes Molly

  9. What a lot of legs. Glad my mom don't have to pay his boots LOL. Sniff and wags from Laika and Vaks.

  10. They are yucky. Have a great weekend!

  11. I never get to see centipedes that big! They are kind of creepy, but also kind of amazing.

  14. Well, Jan was eating. What an ugly bug.

  15. TW didn’t like those things when the peeps had their house and every so often they’d see one. I bet they’re tasty.

  16. Very cool photo, but centipedes give me the creepy crawlies! Hope you protected your humans from it! ;)

  17. Yikes, that thing sure has a lot of legs!
