30-legged insect - Scutigera coleoptrata
Sayre, Bradford County, Pennsylvania, USA
June 20, 2021
Size: 1.25”
Insect was found in our shower stall. We’d never seen one this big before. Its body was a bit over 1.25” long. We assumed it somehow came up through the shower’s drain. Nearby there were the remains of a smaller insect; a tiny head with the antennas still attached, and multiple curled up legs. We assumed that the larger insect had eaten it.
