HOW many feet?   Leave a comment

One Hundred.  So says my husband, about the “Cien Pies” (Centipede) we’ve seen in both the dry area of El Salvador in Chalatenango, in the Northwest, and Los Planes, just to the south of San Salvador.  The shot on newspaper gives you an idea of the size of this creepy crawly critter.

This one is between 3-4 inches long. It’s most distinguishing characteristic is the way it wiggles as it crawls, and gives you the heeby-geebies. More in the Cien Pie / Centipede at Wiki.   See more at the Wonderful World of Insects in El Salvador Photo Gallery.
