A large centipede of the genus Scolopendra.
The harmless but 'pincer-like' rear legs which have spiked tips for grasping.
The open 'spiracles' on alternate segments and the sharp claw on the end of each leg.
The powerful, jaw-like 'maxillipeds', under the head, which can give a venomous and painful bite.
