Monstrous centipedes tend to attack anything that resembles food, biting with their jaws and injecting their poison.
Smite Good (Su): Once per day the creature can make a normal melee attack to deal extra damage equal to its HD total (maximum of +20) against a good foe.
Poison (Ex): A monstrous centipede has a poisonous bite. The details vary by the centipedes size, as shown on the table above. The save DCs are Consitution-based. The indicated damage is both initial and secondary damage.
Skills: Monstrous centipedes have a +4 racial bonus on Spot checks, and a +8 racial
bonus on Climb and Hide checks. They can use either their Strength or Dexterity modifier for Climb checks, whichever is higher. Monstrous scorpions can take 10
on Climb checks, even if threatened or distracted.
