I found a insect that looks kinda like an under water centipede. Does anyone have any idea what it might be? Its bout three inches long and has pincers on one end i think its his head. And it moves around alot and fast.

I found several creatures similar to that discription here in Southern California. I would like to know what they are too.

Could you post a picture? Perhaps someone on this site would know if it were a safe insect for a Tiger Sal to eat.

I wouldnt trust a wild creature (espeially with large mandables) with my salamanders. It may have some kind of parasites. I've never heard of them being fed to anything, so I wouldnt even risk it.
