    I was walking by the bathroom and heard a strange noise coming from within. I headed in and saw my cat, BigCat, fighting this bug who had gotten stuck in the bathtub.

    E-PL1 14-42mm @35mm f5.2 1/40 ISO 1600

    I wouldn't want bugs like that in my bathroom!

    Nice picture, by the way. :)

    If you can mind the Street Fighter music, here is a small clip shot with my E-PL1 that shows who had the upper hand.

    Centipedes are carnivorous and have some nice mandibles and poisonous claws. As a result can give nasty bites.

    It's just a common Silverfish, they aren't carnivorous. They eat stupid stuff like book bindings and hair.
