So I bought a Vietnamese Centipede on Saturday while out of town and got it back home yesterday. It stayed indoors while I was out of town and not out in the heat. The drive home was around and hr and half and also had AC. The centipede was alive and moving when I get home but after I got home from work today I noticed it was laying in the same place I had left and didn't move when I accidentally bumped the enclosure. The centipede was also given crickets when I left and it didn't eat any of them but had also been fed two days beforehand. I pulled the crickets out today when I noticed it wasn't moving. I gently poked next to if with tweezers to see if I could get a response a from it. It didn't make any substantial movement. It will move the tiniest of bits such as small leg movements so I'm not sure if it's wanting to start molting or if it's on the verge of dying. It will also move an antenna slowly every now and again. I have a pic but can take more if needed. Thank you for all the help and sorry if this post is redundant. I'm just sad it seemed find one day and suddenly it seems like it's on the verge of dying.
