In the UK adults are quite expensive so you're lucky.

You're subspinipes will look incredible. They always do after a molt.

A couple I used to own. Rubbish phone pictures. Regret selling these but I'd lost the love for my inverts so sold them all apart from a couple.

Scolopendra sp (Hispanola giant red)



Juvenile scolopendra galapagoensis.

Yeah, one of the 'Pro' of Italy when venomous are involved is that centipedes, incredibly, reached a sort of 'deity' status. They are cheap, available, you can ship those (unlike other inverts, save for feeders) and, if you end bitten, the Hospital will cure you without questions.

Unlike for arachnids that were banned, lol

Nice. I have a batch of Hardwickei, seem to be exactly the same size, most of which also shed this week. That's a pretty hefty cricket you've given him!

Yes. It isn't shy with food and the venom shuts down the cricket pretty fast. It's a good meal after a shed. It's looking really skinny.

Oh my god I need this centipede. In my country, you can usually get a cingulata or a subspinipes, I have very rarely seen someone offering other species, but man, the hardwickei is gorgeous.

They are very very bonny. Not the biggest but their colours are unreal.
