    (Scolopendra subspinipes) in the Philippine Islands. Am J
    Trop Med. 1950;30:453–455.

    Scolopendra heros (castaniceps) - Giant redheaded centipede

    Article focusing on Scolopendra heros but with genereal centipede info.

    There are a few technical issues (there are FIVE not, four orders of centipedes... Craterstigmomorpha was left out) but over all it is a good "fun" read. Also, i thought geophilomorpha gained legpairs with each molt but this says they are born with their full complement...

    also, i appreciated this
    "In the mid 1920s, Dr. Baerg tested the effect of the venom by inducing a centipede to bite one of his little fingers, leaving the fangs inserted for about four seconds. The bite was followed by a sharp and strictly local pain, which began to subside noticeably after about 15 minutes. In about two hours the pain was only very slight, but there was a general swelling in the finger. Three hours after the bite, most symptoms had disappeared."

    i TOLD you that was how it was done!

    Thanks for that download. Attems wrote a lot of big and good books.

    All publications have a copyright till 70 years after the authors death. Without permission you are normally not allowed to offer it for download or so. If someone of Attems relatives see this and are petty-minded or need some money you will have an expensive problem. btw Attems died 1952. So it's unfortunaly illegal :8o
    If I were you I would delete this download in some days tp prevent future problems.
