Meet our newest resident!

Giant Sonoran Centipede

Scolopendra heros

This centipede is native to Southwestern United States and Mexico and is the largest known centipede in the region. It can grow anywhere from 6.5-8”! While it looks ferocious, this centipede’s bite only causes pain, never death in humans.

Come check him out at Butterfly Pavilion!
