Advertisement I accidentally disturbed my centipede who was slightly under her substrate. I did not know she had eggs. When she was uncovered, she dropped and abandoned her eggs and then buried herself again. For a few hours, the eggs remained on the surface and she stayed buried. I covered her enclosure with a towel to give her more darkness to reduce the stress I probably caused her. After an hour I checked on her. Her eggs were gone. I know they often eat their eggs if disturbed and abandoned. But is it possible that she could have gathered them back up and took them with her back underground? I ask this because I'm not sure if she would have been able to eat them all in that hour.
