No offence taken (why would that be offensive anyway?) but I feel like you are severely mistaken here. First of all, you failed to address the fact that other people have been bitten by the SAME species that Coyote was bitten by and not experienced such severe pain. I would like to see your responses to the other comments on here, not just mine. Secondly, what about anything I said "doesn't matter"? Do any facts/anecdotes you don't feel like accepting fall under that category?
Finally, your last statement simply shows you know little of centipedes. No one who has read the bite reports from both species would rather be bitten by a S. dehaani than a S. gigantea. No one. Also, S. gigantea are not found in the Caribbean; any "records" of such would likely be misidentified S. alternans or S. subspinipes.

Now no offence mate but it doesn’t matter the size of the centipede
Please use punctuation. It’s difficult to understand what you are trying to convey.

This all couldnt be more wrong. If you truly believe that size has nothing to do with a venomous animal’s potency and capacity to deliver a bite, you are seriously mistaken with not just Centipedes, but any animal with venom. But then again because you didn’t use punctuation, this could also mean something else.

large centipedes like ethmostigmus rubripes and most scolopendra species have strong venom and very large forcipules that are capable of bleeding the wound
And? Have you ever poked your finger or stabbed yourelf? The bleeding from the wound is always minor because they are usually capillary bleeds.

And I’d rather get bitten by a dehaani centipede than the whopper scolopendra gigantea from the Caribbean!

Oh, is that so?

The pain difference between a 15 or 20cm dehaani and a 30cm gigantea shouldn’t even be an argument. No doubt the dehaani is going to be way worse. Just because an invert is bigger doesn’t mean it’s going to have a more painful bite, just look at a Theraphosa sp. vs a Stronatopelma sp.

Well, the bit where you said I failed to notice other bite effects, coyote said it depends on how the body reacts to the venom (which I already knew that) and the fact that I do know a fair bit about centipedes, that I was only joking I admit that yes I’d rather be bitten by S.gigantea than S. dehaani, but I know that there is a species of centipede that can swim and that Lithobius forficatus can be submerged in water for several hours, that a Philippine child got bitten by S.subspinipes and died 29 hours later and I also know a fair few other things about centipedes including the scientific names I’m good at. My father is a marine biologist and he specialises in nudibranchs (sea slugs) and he can name them down to the pinnacle and he also discovered new species too! I’m not saying that you’re wrong but I do know a fair bit about centipedes and I learn even more about them just by watching my ethmostigmus rubripes go about his day!!!

I have no experience with centipedes but Brave Wilderness recently released a bite report which he said was the worse one yet. Is it really that bad or is he putting on a show? He literally starts crying at one point
Has he been bitten by a snake yet?

Oh and have you checked out my thread counted the legs on my ethmostigmus yet? I forgot to mention that to you in my last email, so if you’re interested, I would like you to check it out at some point! And it’s received some comments. Feel free to leave me a reply and I will get back to you as soon as possible! P.s I appreciate replies!!!!

He released another centipede video? I’ve been bitten by this species like a dozen times, including an 8 inch adult. He’s all hype and exaggeration.

In the video he immediately started screaming, but the venom takes time to build up. He also used a stupid venom extractor which has been proven to not work.

As @Staehilomyces says, his followers are all children it seems reading the comments.
But hang on a minute! I read his comments and I watch his videos and I’m over 18 years, so in that case I am an adult that does support him and responds to his videos! And lastly, I am really interested in centipedes, scorpions and spiders, despite being a invert keeper and drag racing bikes in the state forest! And my best friend Zack, who keeps venomous snakes and also supports Brave Wilderness’s videos and reads his comments, and yet he drag raced me on mountain bikes in our local park!

I am not that mistaken though! I actually joke around a lot, but that is because I am trying to make friends and get to know you all! I do not mean to be offensive but I just like talking to people and making friendships with them!

Well said
I think killing centipedes and spiders is morally wrong, because they go out of their way to get rid of cockroaches, flies and other bad pests! Spiders and centipedes do deserve a lot of respect! Arachnophobia is stupid, idiotic and childish and being scared of centipedes as well just makes you a ridiculous little baby! I will stand up for centipedes and spiders and I will save them from extinction to my last dying breath! I have studied and researched these animals, I know lots about them and if I need to start a campaign to save them from extinction, I will do that to my living wits, and nobody will stop me! Coyote Peterson, I now speak directly to you. God himself created these creatures for a reason and we love them and we enjoy keeping them and giving them the best life possible!!! Appreciate these creatures because we all only live once! That is all! Respect our arachnids and myriapods that have the right to live here and treat them with affection as though they were your own family members!!!

Yeah exactly! The children may even become centipede killers and if that happens, I will be LIVID like you’ve never seen me before!!!

I’ve done a lot of research about centipedes and right now, I have concluded that yes you do have a point but I don’t often have time to learn more about centipedes and spiders because my stepfather watches me all the time and he hates centipedes and spiders!

That’s my experience with a S heros bite. The specimen that bit me is a grumpy bitch. Wasn’t nearly as bad as Coyotes..... but still pretty uncomfortable.
I have a 8”+ galap that is bitey and I’m thinking about a bite.
Not ready for my Sulawesi though.

IMO the dude is making money having fun with bugs. Not gonna fault him there. Maybe he can be more accurate and up to date on the perpetually fluid state of entomology, maybe he can tone down the theatrics, but he’s a showman first, naturalist second.
In all honesty, I’d take his place if the opportunity arose.

I’m telling you, I’m warning you that you do not want to be bitten by a large centipede unless you have a very high pain tolerance and it would be similar to a bee sting, otherwise do not get between the fangs of a centipede longer than six centimetres or if the species is known to be highly painful and highly venomous! You do not want to be like Coyote Peterson!

Post a reaction video PLEASE. I wanna watch that.
I haven’t got a dehaani or a gigantea centipede. I’ve got a high pain tolerance so it might be different symptoms on me than other people! And centipedes only bite if you tick them off!!!

Wow no need to get so defensive...Kevin was merely joking about the fact you said you'd rather be bitten by Scolopendra dehaani (one of the most venomous centipedes known) than Scolopendra gigantea (basically the gentle giant of the centipede world).

I am going to ask you to get bitten by an Australian inland taipan because I wanna see what happens! I will crack the pot laughing my head off!!!
I am sincerely sorry about my foul behaviour towards you! I understand that you were joking and I mistook it!

Yours sincerely

Yes I actually do think that the size of a venomous animal plays a very big part in the severity of the injury itself! If I am mistaken please tell me! Thanks, much appreciated!!!!
