Well done and very informative.
Cool thread as they are one of my favorites.
They are diggers so deep sand substrate is to their liking. Room temp and a small water dish is fine.
Very cool. I’m a big fan of the smaller centipedes. Got a few S sexspinosis guarding clutches currently. Springtime brings nice surprises.
I’ve gotten most of my dream species over time. Field collecting S miscieoni and H spadix are on my list currently.
A pococki and it’s cousin, A phaiodactylus I typically find in loose groups very proximal to each other.
I like 6”-8” deep substrate for all my S heros.
That video footage is so very cool.
No need to handle them. Using a bigger enclosure with more space to maneuver can help.
They are a fun species to keep.
Well let’s get some more S alternans in the hobby then from PR.
I like to use plastic storage containers.
I use flat rock pieces stacked over a sand/coco fiber mix substrate.
All S heros Ive kept are highly visible. Alipes sp tend to be very visible in my observations.
Long lived slow to mature. Rocky slopes and hard packed dirt dwellers. They are burrowers and will dig fairly deep down.
Very temperamental and quick to sting. They habituate arid hard packed soil and rocky hillsides. The ones I have I believe came from Big Bend,TX....
I’m a fan of Zilla Jungle Mix. I should probably make my own as it would be way cheaper. Anyone got any good recipes?
