Just got home from a reptile show, here in town. I cracked down and bought my second 'pede today ;)

It's *SO* impressive, but I almost had an accident moving it from its little cup to a larger one. I didn't know they move so fast!! It almost got out a few times before I got it in.

Once it was enclosed, I fed it a superworm, which it seemed to like. I've named it Demon :D

Enjoy the photos!

So what's the best kind of housing for a critter like this? I currently have it in a deli-cup that's 12" across, and 3" deep and I'm very afraid of it getting out when I go to feed it.

I keep mine in a clear container for CD storage I got at Kmart, the container has the same ground area as a 5 gallon tank.
