    I'm considering one of these beasts to add to the collection....how humid do you typically keep the substrate with these guys?

    check other caresheets too to make sure all facts are indeed facts (as far as facts apply that is...)

    Basically, when keeping these guys (scolopendra) I find keeping them all around 70-80% humidity works for them all. Almost a universal kinda thing, but its definately worth checking into before purchasing an animal.

    For me, I keep that humidity rather easy, just make sure the substrate is misted when it starts to look dry. Not wet, just moist is enough. Cobra mats work well heh. I almost never have humidity problems. I have problems of things drying up fast but not much of a humidity problem if misted regularly.
