Giant Desert Centipede (Scolopendra heros)
L=up to 8" (20cm). Flattened body is overall orangish with black
bands and black head and rear segments. They have one pair of yellow legs
per body segment. The last pair of legs are orangish and held up which
makes them look like the antennae (making it difficult for predators to
determine which end is the head).
