Thanks Kristi. I don't think the "roach" was a scarab but, as I saw another one last night, I'll try to get another look the next time it surfaces. From my Google searches, the centipede looks similar to a Scoiopendra Heros, a "giant desert centipede that is a very fast and agile predator with a painful and slightly venomous bite. Centipedes feed on insects, other invertebrates, and even small rodents." Only problem is, they live in the Sonoran desert. Maybe it's a cousin...If it eats insects, maybe I'll keep it around but then it would probably bite me, since most insects do.
I like Thing One and Thing Two, Kathy C!
