Centipede (drawing)

Centipede -Illustration

A centipede is an insect that possibly originated on Earth. The centipede was later introduced to the ecosystem of Arrakis by the planetologist Pardot Kynes.

In his historic speech to the great Freeman Convocation at Red Wall Seitch, Liet-Kynes named some of the insects that had been imported from off-world to improve the ecosystem of Arrakis - centipedes, scorpions and bees.
