There are around 3,500 species of centipede, present on all continents except Antarctica. All are predators, injecting venom using fang-like appendages that house a venom gland. The biggest, most aggressive species (some capable of preying on bats, rodents and birds) belong to a group composed of at least 700 species with a fossil record that extends back more than 300 million years. Join us to find out more about these spectacular animals.
