Found this in my house this morning hiding under a shoe? Been all of the web and cannot find one like it. Have found some similar but not this one.

Hi Misty,
You neglected to tell us where this was found, other than under a shoe. It looks like a Multi-Colored Centipede, Scolopendra polymorpha, which vary from dark olive yellow to greenish brown. This centipede can grow to 3 or 4 inches in length. They can bite painfully.

    Hello. I was just pinched or bitten by the same kind that misty posted. I’m I’m NW Arkansas. And just wondering if it’s poisonous? After it happened besides freaking out because it came from my pillow, my figure started to sting and the sting felt worse with movement. It still kind of hurts almost 2hrs later.
