Advertisement So about 5 months ago I captured a large florida blue centipede while camping and decided to keep it as a pet in a good sized deli container full of peat moss and moisture. At about 3 months in the centipede stopped coming to the top for food and was mainly sleeping underground for quite a while (over a month). A month later I am now back in school and brought it up with me, the car ride shook up the container so I couldn't see the centipede through the container. It's been two weeks since the car ride and assumed it was dead so I just took out the deli container, shook it, and now babies are emerging from all over the peat moss. I guess she was storing sperm for a couple months??? Quite a long time in my opinion. During the time she was underground I noticed she was in the state of being curled around the eggs, though I didn't think that was it so I assumed she was shedding. So now I have tons of tiny hungry florida blue centipedes, what do I do now? Thanks.
