This picture is upside down — the spider was clinging to the ceiling near my kitchen light. I think it was trying to look menacing by putting up its front legs.
House centipedes are attracted to water — like the glass of water you leave on your bedside table.
Its difficult to capture in a photograph how fast these things actually move, but suffice to say you don’t want to see one anywhere close to where you sleep — even if they do eat all kinds of actual household pests.
If you shoot a centipede, the two pieces do not independently try to attack you. However, if you crush it under a tissue box, its legs will start moving involuntarily and creep you out as they brush against the cardboard.
Here are some long-exposure photos of planes taking off and landing at the Las Vegas Airport.
These worms are aptly named.
I’m not sure what they’re doing above ground at night, but I did see them hunting around in grassy or leafy patches. Whether that means they eat dew, sleeping insects, or the plants themselves is beyond me.
