good advice thank you
Scolopendra gigantea 'Black' from Trinidad
If I even see one of these in my lifetime, I'll consider myself lucky.
A handful of these beauties right here...
I've seen a VERY similar species to that in the Dominican Republic on the outside of a cave. It was about the length of an adult Narceus gordanus, the only difference between the one I found and the photo was that it didn't have the fading orange, just the bold yellow stripes.
My dream myriapod is a scolopendra Hardwickei the Indian tiger centipede. It is the ultimate invert I would die for!!!
All three of these seem impossible to find at the moment, but the blue cloud forest polydesmid is likely the hardest to keep given the elevations it lives at.
Whoa, an arboreal millipede? That's awesome!
I have a couple of my dream pedes already, Galapagoensis and Mint Legs. My others would be Cataracta, Hardwickei, Heros, black morph Gigantea, Malaysian Jewel and Scolopendra Sulawesi.
Is that a banana?
I got a macro video of my Chinese mantis eating a whole chunk of golden kiwi the other day, so I guess some carnivores just have a sweet tooth.
Currently Hunting for; Spirostreptus sp. "8" female. I've got 1 male, and I really want to get some babies, as this is a rare species. Really any exotic millipede species is on my wishlist. Pill millipedes, round millipedes, platydesmids, polydesmids, etc.
Currently out of my budget range; All of the above . Also, Ethmostigmus sp. "Thailand".
Absolutely Impossible to keep; Giant Pill Millipedes with our current understanding of their care.
Not really hunting for anything atm. For outside of my budget hardwickei, and for impossible (for now) cataracta for sure. I absolutely love hardwickei's colors, and a cataracta would be really fun to have (I think) but it's too bad it will probably be a long time before they're even available, and even when they are they'll be expensive as hell
It is indeed, Scolopendra Galapagoensis is omnivorous. It also eats cheese and drinks milk.
Just curious what is the reason for wanting Scolopendra Cataracta? is it just because they are known the be semi aquatic?
Yeah pretty much
Sorry to contradict you Staehilomyces but I think minibeast wildlife’s products are a total “ripoff”. I was going to buy a rubripes tiger form before I came across a tiger form rubripes (at last) in late 2017 and I could not believe how much they were charging for it!! $45.00!! Lucky I found one (named Bob, as most people who know me know it’s name) before I hit the submit credit card bank details in order to purchase as you probably already know, but yeah. That is my opinion and my 2 cents worth.
It's a Scolopendra Paradoxa from Luzon. There is a debate about the taxonomy and it might just be spinosissima.
"Philippine Queen" are scolopendra paradoxa, likely a subspecies of spinosissima
