Most research on the anti-predator behaviour of vertebrate prey has focused on their responses to vertebrate predators. Nonetheless, invertebrates are abundant predators in terrestrial ecosystems, and some invertebrates (e.g., centipedes, spiders) attack and consume vertebrates. We used a combination of field data and laboratory experiments to determine whether a predatory centipede (Scolopendridae: Cormocephalus sp.) influences habitat selection by the nocturnal rock-dwelling velvet gecko… Expand
