Hi guys. This is my first thread post. I'm currently keeping a Rhysida Longipes and I don't know what to feed it. It's about 3.5-3.7 inches long. I tried giving it a small wood roach but it didn't go after it. I could really use help here, thanks!

Centipedes can be funny with food, so don't worry if it doesn't eat for a while. It will eventually (or not, in which case there was not much you could do about it). Just make sure everything else is OK, like temperature, humidity and substrate. You can always try another food source see if it prefers it.

Also, African Yellow Leg is usually a term used for Ethmostigmus trigonopodus.

@scholy sorry, wrong name. It's supposed to be African Long Tail Centipede, right?
