They're scary but fun. They can reach eight inches easily.
Keep 'em warm, extra humid but not soaking (they dessicate easily), and give it something to burrow into. Make sure you have a locking lid that will retain humidity well. If you get a baby, they can easily escape from a KK lid.
Good luck, if you decide to go for it!
Pedes are faster than ANY T, it is surreal. They are also the strogest things I have ever seen for its size.awsome! thanks alot guys! i had already heard about their speed and venom potency. but as i have a p.murinus im acustomed to speed and venom toxicity. so i dont think ill have a problem with that.
oh yeah, good point. cents can use their body shape to gain leverage. it is pretty crazy how much force a relatively little cent can exert when i am playing with them.Pedes are faster than ANY T, it is surreal. They are also the strogest things I have ever seen for its size.
I have seen the speed of many centipedes, yes they're fast and eratic sprinters. But my eyes can follow them at all times. Very quick.Pedes are faster than ANY T, it is surreal. They are also the strogest things I have ever seen for its size.
One of my centipedes used to do that. The other one of the same species didn't though. It actually looked like a freshly landed fish.oh yeah, and some centipedes can sort of hop in a panic. the way i have seen S. polymorpha do it is by whipping both ends in opposite and then the same and then opposite directions... they move very quickly in sort of random directions. it's pretty funny to watch.
