Overall, centipedes tend to follow the same basic design in having a head and body section, the body being typically flat and multi-segmented. The segments are where the centipede derives its name (translated from the Latin to be '100 Foot') as each holds a pair of legs in the arrangement (which can vary from species to species). Centipedes can be found both indoors and outdoors, hidden and in plain sight, and come in a variety of sizes and colors.
