Commonly called Velvet Worms - Peripatus are a very ancient species over 500 million years on the Earth - and existed before Centipedes, you might say they are like 'primordial centipedes' - but instead of having an exoskeleton and piercing their prey with venom tipped appendages near the mouth (as a Centipede does), these creatures shoot out a sticky web (much like Spiderman) and entagle the small arthropods they feed on. These are extremely rare in Barbados and the Society is attempting to breed them in captivity, anyone who discoveres one and is willing to donate it to our program will be publicly thanked on this website.
