This one was sold to me as a Vietnamese Pede, I dont seem to recall these pede's having bright yellow legs which kinda leads me to it perhaps being a Tanzanian Yellow Leg? Have a look see if you can get a good Idea....

remember, color is one of the worst traits to use in ID'ing any centipede

I think after lookin' at a bunch of pix about these Pede's, That it would be safe to say that it's a Scolopendra subspinipes de haani Mai Chau

I caught a glimpse of it this morning, and it seems that it's missing a leg as well....I'd gather that when they molt, that the legs grow back, but other than that and the part of the last apendage is missing a portion, she's a healthy beast!

yes, the regenerate legs. keep an eye on that terminator though. it looks like it might be black at the tip? if that's the case it might be mycosis.

uh.. i don't know what to do if it is though, aside from keep it a little drier adn assure drinkign water
