Fuci Fuci insect Italia

Print Friendly and PDF
Whilst in Puglia in the south of Italy, I've come across the locally named Fuci Fuci insect (in dialeto) which is Puliese dialect for "run run".
A quick search of the internet doesn't tell you what this insect is actually called, based on the dialect name, not surprising.
It's a member of the centipede family and is known as the House Centipede.  It is documented here:

It's harmless and is probably on the hunt for spiders!
Still, it creeps me out that something can run 0.5 meters in 1 second!
