This centipede is so happy!

Quick! Describe centipedes in one word!

You said "optimistic," right?


Because the face on the back of this centipede's head is super happy, even when suspended in ethanol. This is a centipede in the genus Strigamia, collected last October from leaf litter when I was searching for millipedes. I wonder if other species have different faces...
