Centipedes hunt their prey.
Centipedes are skilled hunters due to their incredible speed and venomous forcipules. Smaller species primarily consume mollusks, worms, insects, and spiders. Larger species frequently eat small birds, bats, and frogs as food. Even other centipedes will be eaten by some centipedes! Their meals are somewhat dependent on what is available to them. Some centipedes will scavenge for food in a pinch, but most of the time, they will hunt for it. Centipedes hunt for prey with the help of their antennae and catch it with their speed. Then, after encircling their prey, they wait for their venom to take effect before consuming their meal. Really brutal, no? However, it does the job.
