That was quite amusing, but I think that the "centipede" is actually a caterpillar.

Really?
ASAIK caterpillars are insect, so it've got 3pairs of legs. In first few seconds of the movie you can see the characteristic way of moving, which looks like a centipede move. Something like a wave, you know what I'm talking about. Does the caterpillars moving like this?

I haven't seen the movie, but most caterpillars move in a wave-like fashion. Caterpillars also have three pairs of "true" legs just like any insect, but they also have four or five additional pairs of "prolegs" -- leglike extensions that give the impression of having more than six legs.

It looks like flat rock millipede - so a diplopoda afterall.
Watching the movie I thought she's going to eat the millipede at the end ;) Either way not good for the critter to meet a humen it seems...
