Things You Regret Seeing: Centipede Protecting Its Young

January 26, 2016


This is a shot of a centipede protecting its young by curling up around them. I don't know about you, but I would definitely feel safe with those dagger legs wrapped around me. This is the exact same reason why I always sleep with an unsheathed ninja sword at night. "To protect your young?" Yes. "But I thought you didn't have any kids." I do, they're just still in my nuts.

Keep going for a couple videos of centipedes protecting their young in case you're really determined to have nightmares tonight (PROTIP: Eat seafood or a spicy sausage right before bed).

Thanks to Eric A, who is a firm believer in letting your children fend for themselves gladiator style.

  • Carissa Lynn van Raak

    Aww! That first video though.... STOP POKING THOSE SQUISHY LITTLE BABIES YOU JERK!

  • I like how both centipedes in the films each had "that one kid"... (Us parents know...)

    You should see how I defend my young. Once I threw hot coffee on an old woman downtown who said something mean to my daughter.

  • Bling Nye

    You probably shouldn't own a gun.

  • pojojuniper

    I do actually own a gun

  • Bling Nye

    ...and you probably shouldn't.

    the more types of equipment he has available the better he can tailor the use of force to the situation.

    for example he at least had a gun(lethal) and coffee(not lethal), chose to use the coffee.

  • Bling Nye


    Because there was no need for use of force, whatsoever. Lethal vs. non-lethal is entirely fucking moot.

    Responding with 'force' to someone that says something mean shows absolutely poor impulse control and terrible decision making.

    Not to mention the example it sets for the child, that it's appropriate (it's NOT) to injure someone physically because they said something mean.

    People with poor impulse control are close to the last people that should have guns. Not to mention those that think harming another person physically is an appropriate way to respond to something "mean" that was said.

    I didn't know they were parental. I thought they were the "poop em out and leave em" types.

  • The Tear of a Nigga

    torch em all......

  • Joe Schmopped

    It looks like the Sarlacc pit.

  • Frédéric Purenne

    ... that soundtrack. O_o

  • The last time I saw a video with music like that it had a woman taking her clothes off in it.

  • shashi

    there's that craving for hotdogs again

  • Bling Nye

    I think I saw that one.

  • TheQiwiMan

    If you did, I'd be so jelly, since she was referring to a home video she took of herself. I bet it was so hawt.

  • Bling Nye

    I came, I saw, I conquered, I came again.

  • MustacheHam

    I do wonder if I may be the only one who said "aww".
