Howdy from my S. subspinipes

    Hello y'all. I just pulled the trigger on joining the board, but have been lurking or a few months now. This is my S. subspinipes on a very rare occasion it was strolling the surface of its enclosure.

    It eats adult male Hissers once a week.
    It is in a bio-active enclosure with springtails, live plants, and a population of Porcellionides pruinosus isopods.

    Almost all Scolopendra terminal legs have spines at places. S.dehaani simply doesn't have any on the underside of the first segment of the terminals:

  5. Okay...I checked under the terminals.
    It is a dehaani.
    Guess I'll keep the husbandry the same and not get bit.
