Arthropleura armata – Charming han?

31 01 2008


I just saw this in the Wired Magazine. If you thought that centipedes are scary then think about Arthropleura armata an 8 feet long extinct relative of the centipedes that lived more than 300 million years ago. Here is a picture from the BBC documentary, Walking with Monsters. Charming creature, isn’t it? And aren’t you glad that its extinct.
