Awesome. Scolopendra heros pedes are my favorite. Guess I'm a little narrow minded but I'd be happy only having heros pedes. The S. subspinipes (Malaysia) I have is nice too but I'm a sucker for heros. Guess I like the subspinipes for it's behavior more than looks. Nice pede, did you find it in SA?

I found this guy a little north of San Antonio. This one is only about 5 inches. My 8-9 inch trophy heros got out a couple weeks ago!! I was really upset. I had it for 2 years+. I really like these guys too. Definately my favorite pede....maybe cause there the only ones I have ever owned! Lol.

That's weird, my tophy S. h. cast got out a week or two ago also. It was over 9.5 inches, 10 inches when it was still and spread out. It's still bothering me a little. I felt like my dog died! Oh well. I bet you haven't had any other ones because these spoil you from the start. Hope you find your monster. The monster I had got out last year and was gone two months, then showed up again. That was a good day.

Yeah that was it. You know, from looking at some old pics and ones after I found it again after two months, I'm really thinking it molted during the two months it was gone. I think I see some antennae growth and small black spots gone in the newer pics. I never saw it molt and I kept up with that. Oh well, just means we have to get some more!
