Rabies

Asked September 19, 2019, 6:25 AM EDT

Was watching national geographic wild on giant centipedes. The narrator had said they eat bats and i was wondering if centipedes can carry rabies? I know they don't live in Michigan, but i was very curious. Thank you for your insight.

I doubt that the centipedes would be a carrier of rabies. The known hosts for rabies are all mammals.
