Hello. I have a Vietnamese Centipede that I have not seen for about three weeks. I spotted Sayuri once going back down her cork hide to her burrow once about three weeks ago and not since then. I put crickets in during this time and they disappeared so I assumed she ate. Spotted one roaming about this morning so now am not sure. I know they burrow and are nocturnal, but even her night time roam abouts her tank (29 long and escape proof) has stopped. Is she molting or dead? I've read the actual molt doesn't take too long, less than an hour, and I know they slow down activities about two weeks prior to a molt. I don't smell anything to indicate she's dead, not sure if I would with a pede. I did search, but didn't find much around this specific question "how to know if she's burrowed and happy or dead"
