This is the stomach-churning moment a centipede embraces dozens of its babies that have just hatched.

The insect gives motherly love to her offspring in footage filmed in Meycauayan City in Bulcan in the Philippines.

It shows the six inch long creature - of the Scolopendra Morsitans species - taking care of the freshly-hatched tiny offspring.

She wraps herself around the tiny translucent beings to protect them from would-be predators like mice or toads.
