    WOO!!! - lol, I actually did this exact thing at home with a tropical centipede and a cobalt blue tarantula.
    The tarantula won. I think it depends on the size and whether one is on guard or not... When I did it, the tarantula just managed to hold it behind the head so the centipede couldn`t swing round and bite it back.

    I had my money on the centipede from the start. They`re faster and more agile.

    I actually bet on the tarantula, so gratz to the centipede. However, I hate anything that has more than 4 legs!

    And the narrator is an idiot. The centipede DOES NOT have fangs... only the tarantula has fangs. The centipede has two modified forelegs that do indeed contain venom sacs but are NOT fangs.

    Plus, this is an obvious set-up - the tarantula is a timid species and would not be found in this environment - looks like the curly hair tarantula (Brachyplema albopilosum) and the centipede obviously a Scolopendra sp. Hence why the tarantula is just sitting there without even a burrow or a retreat. It`s probably only ever seen the inside of a vivarium before!

    I knew the centipede would win because clearly it was a TV show about the Centipede, which would most likely not include it getting killed by a tarantula. So.. the whole fight idea was ruined.

    When I lived in the Caribbean I had a 5`` one of those things crawl across my ankle. I was lucky I didn`t get bit by the thing. When I finally killed the thing it took at least six blows with a heavy boot to kill it. Man, those things always freaked me out.

    I dont hate spiders, I just dislike them, but I felt sorry for the poor tarantula that looked a bit odd sitting there.

    Normally they hide under rocks or whatev. That centipede just ambushed it, poor thing didnt have a chance.

    Plus nothing should have that many feet. EVER. Unless its a millipede, those things look like giant woodlice and make me laugh. Plus they only eat leaves. I like.
