H marginata caught in the act!

So I recently ordered a beautiful H marginata to start my centipede collection. Have not seen much about this species online compared to scolopendra species for example, but this really is a cool little pede.

He has mostly been buried, with disappearing crickets so I know he's eating, but still never out in the open... Until now! There he was out in the open wandering around the enclosure, so I dropped in a cricket and oh man I am psyched he attacked it! Now I see the joy in owning a centipede and just wanted to share this moment with fellow centipede fans =-)

Sorry for the crappy picture quality btw! I was hoping to upgrade my camera before posting any pics, but this was too exciting to hold back.
