    It's impossible, you can't hold those things if they are alive because they bite. The legs are suppose to be like needles too.

    Hard to bite someone when your head is being held still in a vice grip. If their legs were literally like needles, they'd get stuck in the ground every step they took. They may be really sharp, but since it weighs nothing, it wouldn't hurt unless it started thrashing around.

    That's one mighty cool looking... thing.
  6. Well, these hurt like a biotch when they bite too...believe me. I still have a wicked scar on my leg from it.

    I want to get one for a little while. I think they would freak me out too much though after a while. Espically knowing they could always get loose.

    What. The. Hell. Is. That.

    Do people keep these as pets? (Sorry for my ignorance!) Jesus, imagine if it escaped. My skin is crawling!

    What actually is it though? It looks like some crazy centipede. On steroids.

    Vietnamese Centipede, I think.

    My friend had one, vicious little guys if you've ever seen one eat *shiver*. They move like the Dickens and can bite through clothing.

    Insects are great for gross outs. That dobsonfly sent shivers down my spine.
  17. I know huh? I used to work in a factory building with an aqueduct sytem around the plant (not entirely uncommon) and that is where these bugs like to dwell, moist and dank and kinda dark.

    Well, I'm packing up a shipment, and turn around and dropped something...that's when I noticed it on my leg (on shorts). Well, me being prone to freaking out like a little girl over this stuff, I stamp my foot to try to knock it off. Well, it got the better of me...instead of falling, he stopped his decent by chomping onto my leg. Hard. I had to brush it off me with a whack, and one of the pincers stayed in. Holy crap did that hurt.
