Hey
I'd like to know if anyone keeps myriapods native to where they live. Any species, doesn't matter. I keep Lithobius forficatus (centipede) and something with gluttulatus at the end (millipede)

My son and I just received a centipede that is native to our state: Scolopendra polymorpha. The individual we now have was not collected locally though--we had it shipped from California.

I have a pet House Centipede (Scutigera Coleoptrata) that I caught in my shower, if that counts. Can't get much more native than that.

Basically everyone here in Italy with a S.cingulata.

Pure WC in the Center-Southern part of the boot. We are full of those... a user from UK, during his trip in Puglia region caught one and uploaded pics here.

I'm not sure if that Scolopendridae lives here in the Northern part (more colder) I doubt... but I can't exclude 100% that, either.
It's not rare at all to find Scutigera coleoptrata in our homes but in all honesty I never felt the need to keep one :-s
