House Centipede (Scutigera Coleoptrata) eating cricket

My house centipede has been doing extremely well since molting recently, active and readily taking food. Very happy :)

      @LawnShrimp They're very timid... try to give it a cricket no more than half an inch and leave it in there for a few hours at a time. At first mine was very picky and instant to startle and would only go after prey after having a period to calm down under its hide from the stress of me opening its enclosure and putting the cricket in. Sometimes it would take several days of offering a cricket, taking it out, and trying it again the next day or so. It should eat eventually if you're patient.
