I was alarmed when this little buddy fell out of the dish cloth from my hand.
I’ve never seen these before. What are they called? Its approx 5 cm long. Wriggled more than moving foward.

Dear Therry,
We believe this Centipede may be a Soil Centipede in the order Geophilomorpha, though there is nothing quite this colorful posted to iSpot.
