ok, let me give a little more info:
it is native to the Philippines in South East Asia so it thrives in a tropical climate
it is about 6inches in length
there aren't much centipede experts here (only a lot of people PRETENDING to be experts ) so i really can't confirm its identity. which is really sad because i intend to start a breeding project soon and i still don't know what to call it. :? :? :? :? :?
thanks a lot for your help guys... i guess i could stick with your tentative ID's of mortisans, subspinipes, and polymorpha :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship:
subspinipes are pretty abundant in this part of the country...
...polymotpha: Because this pede hasn't ring forrow.
...cingulata: this pede have too long terminal legs.
How to say this a morsitans... (of course if you are sure inside of the genus scolopendra)
... position of the spireacles
... number and kind of anthenomeres.
... no ring forrow
...relative long terminal legs. it also have a kind of stripe in the distal part of the terminal prefemur. Number and position of the spines in the terminal legs.
...other anathomical diferences.
( simply and easy way, they need better explanations and corrections for sure)
gagamboy can u PM me im a filipino too can we talk in private so we can talk in filipino.. because i have a similar centipede like yours and i also want to id it sucssesfully i bought i last week about 5'' in size..................i want to know its ID so i know what humidity should i give because im keeping it in a 2.5 aquarium, a dry cocopeat as a substrate and a wood bark as a hide and there are no trace of moisture in it only a water dish nad it loves to burrow and oh yeah they said its a polymorpha but this centipede is local in the phillipines and polymorpha is from texas and in the US so its impossible right?
