  1. Remarkable... I wonder what the scale is here. How big are those bats that a centipede can hold one while hanging from the ceiling. I'm reading Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything these days and he talks a bit about extinct oversize centipedes, strange ten foot tall birds, and rhinoceros the size of houses. Not sure how much of this has been proven, but it's pretty cool to imagine. Disproportion is the stuff of Alice in Wonderland.
