Lanmolas are giant red or blue centipedes, about 10 feet long at maturity (head and 4 sections).
They do not have a central nervous system, per se. Their movement is controlled by ganglial clusters along the sides of their bodies. Therefore, they can be cut in half, and continue to move. To be killed, they must be totally destroyed.
