    So I just caught a centipede wandering in my house. I decided to keep it as a pet. I'm not sure if it is an adult or a baby. Someone also help me identify it's species. Thank you.

    Around 4-5 cm
    Edit: Are you sure it's a S. mutilans because mine has a very light coloured head

    That might be the correct subspecies

    It's not S.mutilans: they don't look like that nor do they live there (though are farmed in many places, so wouldn't be surprised to find it outside of its range).

    This is Rhysida longipes or Otostigmus scaber, I can never tell the difference.
