Scolopendra Morsitans

Beautiful little rainbow thing
@NYAN sorry for the tag, im really wanting to socialise this pede while it is fairly small, and i recall you knew a few ways of doing so. what is the best way to get started?
 
Get it associated with your scent first. You can do this by interacting with it inside of the enclosure briefly. I would let it walk over my hand while still inside of it’s enclosure to do this. The next step I would do is to do brief handling sessions inside of the enclosure and see if the pede will allow you to pet it. Once you feel it’s comfortable, you can try to handle it outside of the enclosure.
 
@RezonantVoid keep in mind that there are other ways to do this. Also, I’ve been bitten a few times, so maybe my way isn’t 100% successful.
 
yea, i read your bite report, ill try to be careful. i know not to freak out if it goes for a test bite, even if this one is small
