Description

Out by this barn in Vacaville, I lifted up a rock and under it I found a mount of moist dirt that was like a 'clod' of dirt. I broke it apart a bit, and out came this centipede. He was fast, so I could only get one picture, before he crawled underground.

Darted around when I lifted up the rock it was under. About 3/4 of an inch long and very skinny. It's small size made it appear juvenile

very quick to get to cover once the board it was under was lifted but was still able to get a photo. an orangish color to it made it stand out quite clearly on the dark ground in which it made a home out of.
