    From what I hear most centipedes are very aggressive and have painful bites. Arachnoboards.com is probably a great place to get some info on mainly arachnids and such bugs. Due to they are mainly bugs and very active. I have also seen some pretty disgusting pics of centpedes devouring roaches and PINKIES! It's quite a gross bloody, gutsy looking mess.

    We own a Vietnamese centipede (Scolopendra Subspinpes) - it is a very venomous species, and apparently quite aggressive and extremely fast :p Right now it is only a couple of inches in length, CB May 04, but will grow much larger. At the moment it is kept in a cricket tub, on soil, which we mist with water every few days, kept at room temp. We feed it once a week, at the moment on 2nd instar crickets, (although silly me fed it a 4th instar last night, but it managed it just fine :D ). Joe brought it home the other day, after our friend gave him it, and I was very impressed but it is a beautiful creature I have to admit - midnight blue body and bright red legs. :)

    Yeah, unlike some scorps, Ts, millipedes, mantids, and other bugs, centipedes can be really hard to handle cause theyr'e extremely quick and yes, they will bite.
