Anyways just thought I would share. :)

It's you're destiny:worship: ................for a while anyway:) . I like a little of everything. I'd probably be better off with 3 pedes, 3 T's and 3 scorps. But I'm way over loaded with pedes. Looking forward to your pics.

Welcome, centipedes are one of the most coolest and freakiest creatures in the realm of inverts.

Definitely a invert to give alot of room and respect too.

The strength and speed can be surprising, and can be bitey if molested.

Nonetheless, easy to manage at least most of the common species (read a couple threads here of some that are contrary) and undeniably beautiful creatures.

Thanks everyone. :)

It just got done eating it's first meal...actually more of a appetizer. I threw in 2 med crix, it ate one in about 30 seconds and disappeared again. :( I'm sure the other will get owned some time late tonight. {D

This week I'm picking up 50 B. dubia roaches to get my colony started, then Mr. pede can start eating some real food. :cool:

Welcome to the Dark side. I am hooked no myself. Just remember, keep the dubia warm or you're gonna have a very long wait for them to start reproducing. I found that out the hard way. :D
