She’s calming down a lot. She’s like my little venomous dog! Haha.
Part 2. Sorry if my posts are getting annoying but I'm pretty happy with what I've accomplished.
How did you get all those legs onto a baby ball python?
Wow, that's a calm 'pede! Wish you luck with her and the others!
The moment you all have been waiting for: the handling. Went well and I’m happy with the result!
You got this thing last week and you can pick it up already?!?!??!!? That's just unfair.
I guess New World 'pedes have much nicer temperaments than Asian ones. I gotta see about getting one of these things...
Very nice job @Ratmosphere. Beautiful pedes as well.
Aw, she's cute! How long do S. gigantea live? The more I see 'pedes around here, the more I want one. Even if all their legs are still freaky as heck.
I hear around 5-7 years.
As a side note this is a very short lifespan for a centipede. Some live for 15+ years
When I first got her she was very flighty, bitey towards the tongs, and terminals up if the enclosure was disturbed. It just took a few hours a day after work and it ended up going well! Making sure she was well fed helped a lot too.
I doubt that they'd only live for 5-7 years from pling to death. Most internet info regarding pede lifespan is a little out of date. I'd say 10-15 would be more accurate.
Hey if that's the truth then that's even better, I just always heard 5-7 years is standard for them.
Is this the gigantea you just sold?! I hope not.
Na, I had 2. Can't get rid of the calm one haha.
Good. Though, you might be able to make a killing as a centipede whisperer, calming specimens down and then selling them.
Seems that you are a 'natural' for 'pedes, man. Impressive.
A week is actually normal socialisation time for the more docile pedes. That's roughly how long it took me with my old S. morsitans.
I just pick them up out of the box.
We know, Michel. We know.
