Freedom was so close, yet so far for this centipede. After being swallowed whole by a snake, it made one last desperate attempt to escape by eating its way out of her stomach.

The viper and the centipede are both dead! I love a story with a happy ending.
The centipede would have survived but he stubbornly insisted on tying his shoes before going out.
And the moral of the story is:
Chew your food well before swallowing (tough if you’re a snake).
In Soviet Russia, food chews you!
We had them about 8"-9" long at one firebase out in the mountains of South Vietnam. Two Marines were medevaced after being bitten, one on the side of the face and the other on his, um, ...., well, private parts.
If we found one while digging a bunker, etc, after chopping it with and E-tool, we'd place the pieces on a stump, pile excess powder bags from the mortar rounds on it and light them off. Then we'd all dance around cheering.
We REALLY hated centipedes!
Tough SOB's -- at the very least...
The original Bond novel Dr. No used a centipede rather than a tarantula in the scene where Bond is in bed, and is to be dispatched.
That entire scene in the book gives me the willies reading and thinking about it.
We have big purple suckers here in Hawaii, and you do not lean against lava rock walls at night for the usual reasons.
