Centipede

Centipede dredged up from the pool

Centipede dredged up from the pool

Wearing my wetsuit, I had a dip in the outside pool today.

At the bottom of a duck-dive I came face-to-face, so to speak, with this monster of the deep.

Of course it’s a terrestrial creature and it had drowned, which was perhaps as well.

I looked up centipedes on the internet and learnt that they can deliver a very painful bite that causes severe swelling and fever although ‘it is unlikely to be fatal’.

Cheers!
