The Centipede is a rock-dwelling bug introduced in Animal Crossing: City Folk. Like the Pill Bug, the Centipede can be found under rocks by striking it with a shovel or an axe. They can be found between the months of June and February from 4 pm to 11 pm. They are worth 300 bells, which is somewhat low for something so elusive, but typical of bugs. When fleeing from the player they make a rattling sound.

Donating to the Museum

In City Folk

Upon donation to the Museum, Blathers will say this about the centipede:

"Indeed, centipedes are quite fast to boot, wot? If the beast attacks us, how will we flee to safety? Moreover, they have hard shells, so we can't stop it with a furious stomping... We're doomed!"

In New Leaf

In New Leaf an information board in the bug exhibit will list information about this bug.

"Despite the name, centipedes have a varying number of legs, from about 30 to 46 rather than 100. They also have forcipules, which are a modification of the first pair of legs, that inject venom. Centipedes are sometimes used as an ingredient in herbal medicine, though the effect is questionable.

Centipedes can be found on the second level, near the rafflesia, along with the fly.

Bug Encyclopedia Information

Further Information

GreatDarkWolfAdded by GreatDarkWolf
The centipede in this game appears to be the giant centipede, found in the Amazonian jungle. Unlike what most

people think, centipedes are not insects. They actually belong to the class of animals known as Chilopoda, which are close relatives to millipedes and small myriapods known as symphylids. Centipedes are venomous, and some species can cause a fair amount of harm if they bite.

The smaller centipedes feed on insects such as moths and beetles, but the Giant centipede in particular feeds on prey as large as mice.
