i repost again about the strength of venoms from S. gigantea or galapagoensis.

as for me, i have two haitian centipede juveniles(Scolopendra sp.). i was bit 3 times by the individuals while they were growing up from 2.5 to about 10cm of today. i feel its strength is getting powerful as growing up. because more venom get into my body as it gorws. but i have no idea for gigantea or galapagoensis.

do they really have fatal venoms? anybody here who was bit by such species before? tell me your experiences please.. i know there are 5 levels of poison strength for a scorpion. but as comparison to such animals, i'm very curios how terrible venom they(gigantea or galapagoensis) have!

please share your experience with the others. thanks.

Hey Locke I watched your youtube videos of you holding your pedes and I must admit that you are pretty brave.

If you're prey then their venom has a 100% mortality rate. If your a human, it's more like a fraction of a percent because you would have to either have ridiculously large amounts of venom in your body, or you'd have to have some sort of abnormal allergy/sensitivity to the venom. Even the feared black widow would take 10-20 bites to have any chance of human fatality.

hi! i'm so sorry to say like this. maybe you are talking about common knowledge we already know. i'm only asking about anything special for the venom of S. gigantea or galapagoensis in comparison to other giant centipedes. i already have some experiences of being bitten by my haitan giant centipedes. actually its venom was getting stronger as the individual has grown. but i've never heard about S. gigantea stuff. how fatal more than other pedes and so on. anyway thanks for your concern.

I didn't really think you were going. I've never been myself. I never know if I'm going to do things like that until the last minute. Looks like you're going to have to get your venom fix somewhere else:) .

lol maybe we need to start a get Caco Seraph to Acon fund going lol
I know I would kick in a few $$ to see caco get bit by that gigantea. Someone would need to get it on video, because I can't make it. Hell, I'll add in another $10 if he lets it hang on his scrotum by it's fangs.

Not kidding, Cacoseraph's hobby is not arachnids, his hobby is purposely getting bit, stung and mutilated to test the effects of various venom.
