About Centipedes in Alberta
Centipedes are elongated creatures with one pair of legs per body segment. Despite the name, centipedes can have a varying number of legs, ranging from 30 to 354. Centipedes always have an odd number of pairs of legs, therefore, no centipede has exactly 100 legs. A key trait uniting this group is a pair of venom claws or forcipules formed from a modified first appendage. Centipedes are predominantly carnivorous. Their size can range from a few millimetres to about 12 inches. Centipedes can be found in a wide variety of environments. They normally have a drab colouration combining shades of brown and red. Centipedes require a moist microhabitat as they lose water rapidly through their cuticle. They are found in soil and leaf litter, under stones and dead wood, and inside logs.
