Manoj, the information you should put in the Habitat field is "Lowland forest", and any other information specific to the spotting site you have. Generic habitat information such as the one you added can go under Notes, or be provided in a reference. From our FAQ page:"Habitat: Please state the actual habitat where you photographed the spotting - this information can then be used to track changes in habitat, such as those caused by human intervention or habitat destruction. Again, it is not necessary to state published habitat information here, this can be referenced in the 'reference links' box". https://www.projectnoah.org/faqThank you again for all your contributions!

Congratulations Manoj, your Chinese Red-headed Centipede is our Spotting of the Day:"One of the most widely distributed members of the genus Scolopendra, this Chinese Red-headed Centipede (Scolopendra subspinipes) is our Spotting of the Day! Wrapped around the centipede's head are forcipules, modified pincer-like forelegs connected to venom glands. While predators usually catch prey that are smaller than themselves, centipedes can use highly potent venom to subdue prey much larger than themselves. Recent research has shown that the venom of Scolopendra subspinipes contains a cocktail of toxins that can simultaneously disrupt the cardiovascular, respiratory, muscular, and nervous systems of their targets.For more information: https://buff.ly/2FVvcx4 "Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/projectnoah/pho...Twitter:https://twitter.com/projectnoah/status/1...
