Centipede

Centipedes are large carnivorous invertebrates that love to make their home in and around decaying matter. Centipedes are incredibly dangerous around their prey, as they bite them and inject them with venom, killing the prey before it is eaten.

Given the name, most people believe that the centipede comes with 100 legs, but that is in fact not the case. The legs of the centipede run the entire length of the body, and are usually found in 15-30 pairs, depending on the size of the centipede.
