House Centipede

Scutigera coleoptrata



Mostly encountered indoors in damp areas such as bathrooms, cellars, and crawl spaces. It will venture beyond these areas and is often seen quickly scurrying across floors or climbing a wall. Outdoors, they live under logs, rocks, and similar moist protected places.


Found in my bathroom shower just before my day off to school.
