I found this great centipede cage at Target for $5. I've never seen one as big, maybe 2.5 gallon, big enough for gigantea even.

I also picked up a group of Chinese red heads at a reptile show this past weekend. These supposedly were kept for a while and they don't show any major health issues (other than a messed up tergite on one) so hopefully there will be no 'import die-off'.

Nice haul, but damn that's a lot of cheese balls. Roach food?

ive got 2 containers that size i got at Wal Mart that were filled with cheese puffs. one is for my S. subspinipes and the other if for my H. maculata. they work great for housing centipedes.

I got a container just like that but only half as deep from Costco with organic cookies my wife wanted to get for after school snacks. I told her we will be getting another container when that one goes empty.

Hey y'all. I give it about a month and my P ornata three will be wearing their sterilite one-liters like spandex. Recently two separate family members couldn't resist the urge after a fit of "woudja look at the size of that cheeseball jar!!" and bought a couple of 'em....:barf::barf::p{D

Anyway, I figured that after having tasted a product that bad I might better break out the pressure washer and scour them before using- wouldn't want 'em to break out dancin' in some new, cheesy version of dks now would we? Just kidding, but I think they'd make decent enclosures. I'll let y'all know. :)

Awesome purchase on the enclosure, but I must ask, what did you do with all of those cheeseballs? :}

Did you finish building that cage?? I would love to see how it looks now!

I couldn't resist so I bought one of those cheese ball containers. For 5 bucks to feed a bunch of friends for the Super Bowl and get a centipede container, too enticing!
