It gives me the creeps

Before you read anything else, click HERE .

That is what I woke up to this morning, in our bed.

Ya...I freaked out.

Good thing Tyson found it before I did and flipped it on the floor and killed it.

We searched online to find out what it was. ( I was worried it had laid eggs or bit us or had other germs etc...)

I still get the chills just thinking about it and all it's crazy legs. It was about the size of my index finger and each leg was disgustingly long.

It's called Scutigera Coleoptrata or more commonly, a house centipede. They normally live outdoors but during autumn they can be found in human homes seeking shelter from the cold (mainly found in Mediterranean climates).

I hope I NEVER see one again. Even though they are good bugs and eat all the other insects, they still give me the hibbie jibbies.
