A colleague found this ‘bug’ dead in a outdoor store room. We have never seen anything like it and it sent everyone running for the hills. Any idea what it is?

We love your submitted image. For the moment, we can tell you that this is a Centipede in the order Scolopendromorpha, and we will attempt to determine a species later in the day.
Wow thanks for the reply! I will let everyone know. I had guesses that it was a cross between a centipede and a scorpion, a little dramatic 🙂
