House Centipede.

Scutigera coleoptrata


Around a dozen pair of legs. Fast, obviously. Tough to tell front from back.


Around first floor houses or inside. Harmless for the most part, Infact they are a decent pest control for silverfish, roaches, ants, and I've heard scorpions, but never seen it.
