Desert centipede

Who knew that one can find desert centipedes, Scolopendra polymorpha, in Nebraska. I don't yet know the details of how it was found. There is a reasonable chance that this critter was brought in accidentally.

-- Turns out this specimen was discovered in close associate with the army fatigues of an individual who recently returned from Iraq. I'm guessing that this specimen was hitching a ride.
