We have these centipedes all over the place where I live in Marion County, Fl. They scavenge dead bugs to eat. Just don't step on them bare footed or try to pick them up. They have a very painful bite.

Found one of these on the carpet in my house on Aug 13, 2011. Never seen one before. No idea where it came from.
