Scolopendra Mortisans

Just a wee baby! So happy that I managed to find these being sold as they are beautiful! Wasn’t expecting the young to already have such vibrant colours. Can’t wait for them to settle down.
@Scoly I think the blue leg form is Western Australia but could be wrong, there's a few different colour forms.

And man oh man is that some vivid blue! Mine is an adult (Morsitans are a bit smaller than other scoly's) and while the blue is there, it's way more opaque. Lovely species, and probably the only one I'd handle
 
A lot of centipedes are extremely colourful as plings, before growing out into their adult colours, so we'll need to wait and see how it turns out. On the other hand many morsitans have truly striking colours as adults!
