• New Classifieds - Open Beta

    The New Classifieds have entered Open Beta status and are now viewable to all registered users.

    Our New Classifieds can be reached by clicking "Classifieds" in the forum toolbar or menu. Any ads posted in the New Classifieds should be considered "real ads" and must follow our updated Classifieds Terms and Rules. Ads that do not meet our updated Classifieds Terms and Rules will be deleted, and warnings, without points, will be issued. While our current Classifieds forums will remain viewable during the Open Beta period, and current ads posted there can be bumped, new ads must be posted in our New Classifieds so you can familiarize yourself with the new format. The Classifieds forums will be closed once the Open Beta period ends.

    A tutorial on how to use the New Classifieds has been created and can be found here.

House Centipede consuming shed

House Centipede consuming shed

My Scutigera Coleoptrata consuming its shed. Interestingly he only ate about a 1/4th to a 1/3rd of it and then abandoned it, compared to Scolopendra that from what I understand usually eat the whole thing.
Great picture and a very cool pede. We use to have these in our old house, I had one run across my face one night while sleeping. Yeah, it woke me up!!
@Chris LXXIX I actually caught this one in my shower being batted around by my cat ha ha. I've always been weirdly fond of the little guys so I decided to try and keep him as an experiment... now I'm terribly attached. Oops!
@soldierof4cheese My house is full of them... sometimes they run across my bedroom ceiling at night while I'm trying to sleep which used to terrify me when I was a kid, but now I just think they're cute.
