Centipedes vs. Millipedes

To solve the perennial question: millipedes are the cool, friendly looking ones; centipedes have the creepy legs off to the side, poison pinchers and eat cute helpless things.

There is a type of centipede that grows to almost two feet long, climbs the walls of a cave, dangles the front half of its body from the ceiling and snags bats as they flurry in. Apparently looks aren't always deceiving.

If you want to watch it on youtube, here you are.

Wow. That's one big centipede. Even the normal-sized ones are pretty mean and nasty. Millipedes are the "nice" ones, but have you ever noticed how bad they smell? A defense mechanism I'm sure, but it's disgusting.
