Default Can a centipede kill my chinchilla?

Hi, I found a centipede in my bathroom and currently itís under a glass... I donít know what to do with it. Itís not too big but frankly it creeps me out quite a bit. Itís not one of the ones with the long legs, itís the one that you would see in a movie or the ones that ďkill miceĒ. I have a chinchilla close to the bathroom and Iím scared there might be more of the centipedes so I just wanted to know if they are dangerous for chinchillas and if i should look into it or just nothing to worry about.

Do you live somewhere that has "mouse killing" centipede species? If it's just a house centipede, it is unlikely any reason to worry, they like damp places, eat insects, and pretty much try to run and hide from anything bigger.
