The scorpapede is the next generation of the centipean. It has grown much larger (size of a lobster) and has bigger spikes as well as a raised head and tail. They now travel in herds along the bottom of the shallows, eating anything they can find, from plant matter to even carrion. They "see" by feeling vibrations on the ocean floor with their legs as well as feeling the water using their antennae.
