7”-7.25” Suspect Male Scolopendra galapagoensis (Darwin’s Goliath Centipede)

Another photo I took a while back but haven’t posted....
Nice, what makes you think that it's a male? Are they externally sexually dimorphic?
Nope. This one was sold to me as a Male, and I‘m going to wait for it to grow a little more before I go to sex it myself. The only surefire way to sex them is to pop out their reproductive organs, and even then it can be rather tricky....
