Can you identify this bug?
We see them in SE Arizona. ~ 7-9" Long. Thank you,
Len

Hi Len,
What a gorgeous Centipede. This is probably a subspecies of Scolopendra heros, the Giant Red Headed Centipede. BugGuide also has one photo of this color variation, which might be considered a separate subspecies or just a color variation. Thanks for sending us your wonderful image. We wish the head was in the shot.
