Police confirm that they found the man dead and his live-stream was still filming. Authorities have ruled out foul play and suspect that eating the centipedes days earlier was the cause of death. The man’s videos have since been removed from the DouYu website.
It is not known exactly what type of centipede the man ate, but most centipedes are not lethal, especially not their bites.
Fun fact: Centipedes are not insects. Centipedes and millipedes have more than six legs and usually don’t have antennae. Centipedes are in the class Chilopoda of the subphylum Myriapoda, which means in Greek means “countless feet.” Centipedes, which are terrestrial invertebrate predators with an exoskeleton, are closely related to other predatory anthropods such as lobsters, crayfish and shrimp.

Centipedes have a pair of claws or fangs, known as forcipules, that inject venom into its prey to paralyze it. Centipedes generally are afraid of humans and don’t attack us because their claws are usually not strong enough to penetrate the skin.
People who are attacked by centipedes will usually only suffer slight swelling and pain no worse than a bee sting. A bite from a venomous centipede can kill an animal 15 times heavier than itself, such as incapacitate a mouse in 30 seconds, but very rarely a human.
Now enjoy this nightmare fuel of a gargantuan centipede.
