I've seen this a few times now, through various sources, and it remains one of the absolutely, positively most terrifyingly horrifying things I've ever seen.
I've seen one of these in southern France. Awful things. One bit someone we know there on their leg when they were in bed :s Years later they still have a blue mark where they were bitten, and it is colder than the rest of their skin. Also years later, the Scolopendra is dead in glass jar- where it belongs

Centipedes around here are typically very aggressive, you've gotta watch out when you're moving rocks or doing any yardwork.
