I bought a 12 inch long s. subspinipes dehaani about a month ago. This morning I went to check on it to find it curled up in a ball. Then it moved and I noticed a clutch of white eggs.

Why are the eggs white? I have never heard of white centipede eggs. Maybe you were sold a chicken. Also, I want to see pics next to a ruler. I am seriously doubting it is 12 inches long. Congrats anyway! Try not to bother it.

I, too, would like to see a picture of this so-called 12" beast.

I have a thirteen foot cockatiel that moved off its perch to reveal four blind mice!
Seriously though, are they eggs from the centred? They're usually yellowy/Orange colour and are grasped by the pede. I guess they could all be infertile and discarded?

Also showing a couple of my other pedes for comparison, 6'' and 5'' respectively.
