The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department released the first photo of the Texas-sized centipede last week and it's terrifying the internet.

It may look ferocious, but the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department officials say it really poses no threat to humans. The Texas-sized centipede usually feeds on smaller bugs and it is prey to lizards and toads.

In rare cases, bites from the centipede can cause minor skin necrosis, dizziness, nausea and headaches. And fortunately if you ever do run across one of these guys, it will get scared off back under the nearest hiding place.
