nice pics avic,

Yeah those communal pedes are just too cool, Hopefully me and wayne are gonna put an order in from cottonsheep and I'll some of those suckers. Although the sight of a whole load of pedes ganging up on a pinky would probably give me nightmares for weeks =D

cheers,

Stu

John,

you planning on getting some of those communal pedes too then?

Have you let Wayne know? I know that he is planning an order, the more the merrier yeah and it will save on shipping. I think he's waiting for warmer weather too.

cheers,

Stu.

Aviculariinae, your setting is coooool!! My pedes would probably groan for not having the same nice home their buddies got. ;P I'm so glad the lovely pedes got a master with such an earnest. Thank you also for advertising me in such a clever way. :}

gongyles, how can you figure out Aviculariinae bought pedes from me? You are amazing!:? =D :}

Wow, those are awesome. Nice looking habitat, too. Did you "dig them out" for the photo, or are they actually visible occasionally? In my limited experience with two subspinipes, I never ever see them. I'd love some pedes I could actually observe.

Anyone know a good place to order them on this side of the pond?

that should be intresting if you could get some other specie then cottonsheep allready offers,.... i don't know exactually how many different specie of scolopendra are to be found where you guys are from, but sure there will be some amazing others to be found,....

or am i mistaken ? :? :? :?


cheers ! :D

A friend of mine is a herp/invert/fish importer/exporter in HK, I've talked to him, there isn't much more than what they offer.

@Navaros,....

somehow i ain't so sure about that,....
i''ll have to search some stuff up,.... as you know the genus scolopendra isn't the only genus of the subfamily scolopendridae,.... other specie from genus can also grow quite large :)

I know but I have talked to him about everything, his collectors usually bring him back cool crap but he says they don't find much besides the norm, not even cool beetles.I will talk to him again about it though.
