A bug keeper filmed an entomophobe’s worst nightmare as a creepy centipede cared for its babies.

Centipede enthusiast Lee Jae Sug, 18, from Incheon, South Korea, has several terrariums where he keeps monstrous specimens of scolopendra, including venomous ones.

Earlier in May, Lee captured one of his pets at it lay on its back with a brood of newborns crawling on top on top of it.

Lee said: “I have been keeping scolopendras for about two years now.

“I am not sure how frequently these centipedes breed in the wild, but this was definitely an exceptional event for me.

“I was lucky to capture it on video.”
