I have kept tarantulas and scorpions before, but never centipedes. I've got a Scolopendra subspinipes "Tiger Leg" coming my way soon and I haven't found many reliable sources on basic care for it. Temp? Humidity? Should i just keep the leggy guy like a P. imperator?

How big is the one you're getting? They're simple, just keep them humid and warm with plenty of substrate to burrow in. And an escape proof container is a must.

Right now it's about 1". Yeah, im definately getting an absolutely ecape-proof container for him (a friend of mine had a full grown S. subspinipes that got out and ate his little brother's pet hamster). I guess pedes are like scropions and tarantulas and potato chips: you can never have just one! :D

Well, he's heading this way thanks to Ken The Bug Guy, by far the best invert seller I've had the pleasure of supporting. (I was not payed to say that hahaha) I can't wait :D
