Description

A sculpture of Scolopendra polymorpha, the Banded Centipede. Hand-sculpted from 16-ounce copper. 7" length. Extremely lifelike, makes a great garden accent, or display as sculpture indoors.

This centipede is an active predator, taking prey as large as rodents and even bats. Their bites are very painful, but are rarely fatal in humans. The venom is delivered through the animal's forcipules, which lie just behind the mandibles. The venom of Scolopendra species contains compounds such as serotonin, haemolytic phospholipase A, cardiotoxic protein and cytolysin. Scolopendra was one of the genera created by Carl Linnaeus in his 1758 10th edition of Systema Naturae, the starting point for zoological nomenclature.
