Advertisement Hello all. Im rather new to owning centipedes. I've had two in the past. One was a Scolapendra sp, the other being a long tailed centipede.I held my long tailed pede many times, but was always afraid to hold the Scolapendra. Recently i've read a couple posts mentioning that you need to "Spend weeks of socializing before even thinking of free handling". So i did some searching and found a few more posts about Socializing pedes and scorps. I imagine this also works with others as well, but i was hoping you guys could help me out and give a few pointers? I'd LOVE to hold my scolapendra, so any tips on socializing would be swell. I'd like to socialize my L.parahybana juvi as well. Thank you. Edit: Thought i clicked the centipede section. Sorry this is misplaced. Could a mod please move it for me?
