The centipede-like aliens are a yet unnamed species of large, sapient insectoids. Although their homeworld has never been revealed, some members of this species are known to inhabit Earth in the 30th century.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
These creatures have a long, cylindrical segmented body with numerous jointed legs. The head sports a pair of long, also jointed antennae, in addition to two very large black eyes and a beaked mouth. Like most insectoids, they begin life as larvae and have their body protected by an exoskeleton. When in danger, a centipede-like alien will run and hide in a heap of dead leaves; a habit that further increases their resemblance to Earth centipedes. They also have the ability to create a memetic "blur" that obscures their facial features.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Only a few members of this species have ever been seen in Futurama so far: one greeting Elzar in "Bender Gets Made"; a criminal one being arrested by policemen Smitty and URL in the TV show Cop Department in Season 2 Episode 11 "The Lesser of Two Evils", as well as his wife and larvae; and one turning his coat to the coat man at the floating restaurant.
