  2. I've heard that centipedes will eat fruit, how often is this included in their diet?

    Nice specimens. Not sure I like the live feeding of vertebrates, but each to their own. I heard from someone who bred Scolopendra mutilans in bulk that frogs are best avoided because of the number of parasites they contain, but I don't have any solid info, and maybe its just farmed Scolopendra mutilans which are a bit more fragile.

    Most keepers don't feed fruit and have had no problem. Some keepers say fruit once a month. Personally I only use banana because of the crazy nutrient content and the fact they have very little pesticides, but only do it a few times a year. The feeder colonies of roaches get bananas all the time.
     
  4. I usually feed them once a month.

    I think your opinion(frogs are best avoided because of the number of parasites they contain) seems right. But, These frogs have been raised from the farm. So. I think it isn't likely to have lots of parasites...
