Scolopendra heros arizonensis

Mandrean banded form
What a beauty. Did you dig a hole for it in the substrate? Looks like a neat desert setup.
 
@Scoly yeah i made a burrow for it, this was my first go at a truly realistic desert setup, i was happy with the results and i plan to expand on this technique in the future.
 
@Teds ts and Inverts i definitely want to work more with this style substrate, and this species! I initially thought it would be too hard for the pede but aside from the burrow i provided, I've also witnessed it actively digging on its own in various places around the enclosure. As far as appearance goes, I just tried to mimic as best i could the scenery in @uzimantispa instagram posts when he is collecting these wonderful creatures in AZ, lol.
