    Awesome! Did you breed her or was she already gravid when you bought her? I'd like some tips on breeding Scolopendra because I'm going to try my luck at breeding my Sc. sub. mutilans if I can. Thanks in advance Andreas.

    If you want to try, you need some luck. Maybe, you can look at the body of all you have. You will see, that some have e smaller baddy like the other. This is maybe a different between male and female. So you put them together. Sometimes it will work, sometimes not.
    Have many many luck at your breedingproject.

    Do you mean that a particular sex may be smaller than the other? Could you be more specific?

    That´s not scientiffical, only a speculation of mine. I have of every species more than 5 individuums. and only the bulky ones get a clutch. The smaller ones with the same length don´t get a clutch. So I desidet, to take a smal one and a bulky one in one terrarium.
    The Ethmostigmus trigonopodus gone together in one cave and leech on together. I´m waiting for a result of this, than I can say, that it is right for Ethmostigmus trigonopodus.
    For all others, I have to wait for a test with two different width.
    You can only try this, like me. No one can give you a guarantee for nothing.

    Now they get a little bit color.

    Nice... I tried breeding efforts with my 4 spinossima 2 nights ago... well needless to say they are fast and aggressive. When I opened the container to place the first pede in the breeding tank, it ran under my bed and into an open vent. Thankfully I found it 5 minutes ago in my cool storage room. It was so cold it could barely move, so I scooped it up.

    I shall try breeding the other 3 again soon. :)

    please inform us how it works with two spinosissima in one container? This species is the craziest scolopendra of all.
