Internet Horrified by Pic of Texas Readhead Centipede: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A photo posted on the Texas Parks and Wildlife Facebook page of a giant redheaded centipede, also known as the Texas Redhead, has quickly gone viral. 


The giant centipede is pictured on a broom at Garner State Park, and as the name indicates, has a red head, along with a black body. An article published on the Texas Parks and Wildlife website indicates that giant redheaded centipedes can grow up to 8 inches in length. In addition to lizards and toads, the centipedes have been known to prey on rodents and snakes."


There are some disturbing and frightening images on the Internet: Naked pics of Oprah Winfrey, alien autopsy photos, but there`s nothing more horrifying than this photo of the Texas Redhead Centipede.

Everything is bigger in Texas even the cintipedes, the Texas Redhead centipede looks like it escaped from Jurassic World.

This is not the kind of centipede that you squash if it enters your home, if you find this intruder in your home reach for your double-barreled shotgun.

This monster eats lizards, toads, rodents and snakes, and it will probably nibble on babies` fingers and toes.

Don`t click on the pic of this hideous creature if you are a scaredy-cat.
