Hi and I have one of them and I love it to death! I got to hear it do its buzzing last night and it was really neat. As with any pede its best not to get bitten by it if it can be avoided. I have mine in a big critter keeper with forest bed and vermiculite and a water dish which it likes to hide under. I keep its cage pretty moist and if not then there is always moisture under the water dish. They are pretty laid back centipedes but a lot of fun when they do get going. Hope this helps you at least a little bit.
