All our lives we focus more on the big, grand things that we often forget to acknowledge and appreciate the tiny things that matter. The same is the case when we admire nature. While looking at fully blossomed flowers, we forget to admire the beauty of tiny lilies and buds. Often, while admiring the leaves, branches, and trunks of huge trees like the banyan, we often mistakenly crush the beneficial grass and herbs beneath our feet. Additionally, while admiring the valor and power of huge animals, we forget to appreciate the tiny creatures God has created.

Let us talk about one such tiny creature today, the centipede!

Fact 2:

Centipedes can have very long lifespans!
A centipede can live as long as 5-6 years. This lifespan is a lot more than the lifespans of other arthropods.
