Why you order with no info? Dehaani and longipies are humid species and heros likes a drier tank. Have a locking lid for each tank

I've seen some Longipes just as big as robustas and amazon giants I'm excited to grow some out and hopefully breed

There's no species with that name. There's Scolopendra mirabilis, which is questionable. Do you have a link to the seller's site, or photos?
Yes that's the ped mirablis ... But it's not it's a E trig morph I kinda already figured it was I wish more people bred the mirablis cool mid size ped but I guess they are similar to the E trigs

I check the site a lot and never see any new animals on the invert section, I just realized it updated and they were already out of almost all the animals.

That’s where I look. I was going to buy some bumblebee millipedes from them but found a local seller. Still haven’t ordered from them but once I go to Florida, I’m definitely buying from them. I like to go in person to see the animal so I want to go there next vacation.

We've not had Scolopendra sp "mirabilis/Tanzanian neon blue" exports to Europe or the US for quite some time, so will be very interesting to see what these look like, so please post some photos when you get them.

I say Scolopendra sp "mirabilis" because it's not fully agreed that they are Scolopendra mirabilis. They may be a subspecies of morsitans, cingulata or perhaps something else altogether. In the early days of the centipede hobby importers would find a new colour variant, assume it's a different species to anything else, and more or less pick an unused scientific name from that vicinity and call it that. Hence why we have animals sold as robusta, viridicornis, gigantea, possibly mirabilis (and possibly spinossisima, but that's a bedtime story for another day) which are not those things.
