Vietnamese Centipede (juvenile)

Scolopendra subspinipes subspinipes


Juvenile of the species with blue legs. One of the most hated insects in Hawaii because of their incredibly painful stings due to their highly toxic venom.


Crawling on a White Shrimp plant near Kaimuki High School.


I was taking pictures from a distance of the plant, but saw the centipede in the pic when I got home. Really glad I didn't try to get closer
