Giant Pet Centipede Crawls All Over Its Owner

A Taiwanese man who lets his giant venomous centipede crawl over his body has warned his exotic choice of pet is not for everyone.

Biology student Neil Cheng Le, 26, bought the 42cm female Peruvian giant centipede in 2014 when it was just a fraction of its fully-grown frame.

Unsettling footage from last week shows Neil letting the nameless creepy crawly scamper over his body before feasting on catfood.

But Neil doesn’t recommend his unique companion for everyone and warned only experts should handle the dangerous critters.
