Don’t forget the video of the giant centipede eating a mouse.

Colin Cameron 28 Mar 06

That video is insane. Where on Earth are there centipedes that big?

John Lewis 28 Mar 06

Amazing. If Hollywood would make aliens look this real we’d have some kick butt movies.

I think it’s also inspired me for a colour palette for my next webpage.

Oh, beautiful. Thank you!

Jon 28 Mar 06

Stacked focus and 3d shots as well.

Incredible. It makes me want to watch where I step.

That’s nasty.

Michael 28 Mar 06

I suddenly got hungry.

That centipede video reminded me of King Kong. I’m glad that insects are generally smaller than people.

Dale Tan 28 Mar 06

Blah. as gross as they are, they are even more intriguing.

Pretty awesome. Mother nature has been responsible for some of the most varying, yet still amazing, creations!

A centipede eating a mouse … somewhere down deep that just feels wrong. I wanted to shout, “run you fool, run!”.

Oh yeah, insect closeups … awesome

Interesting how something that many of us take for granted, and even dispise, can be so interesting when viewed in a controlled (and dead) enviroment (the Internet). Good find!

Love it! Makes me want to get away from my computer and go study bugs! Just think, they became that way based on their relationship to their surroundings! I wonder what I can do to my environment that will make me grow a few extra arms.

Wait until you see the BBC’s new nature programme Planet Earth - the pictures on that are incredible. All filmed in HD too!

That’s horrible! To throw a live mouse in with that monster, did you here how it sqeaked?! However did musn’t have a heart, if you’re going to feed it mice then a least feed it the dead ones. Not feed it a live one some you can exploit how it kills on the internet.
