OMNIVOROUS PEDES

Hey Scarypoppins,
That is truly weird,man!! Mutilans don't seem to conform to any of the rules that other scolopendra do.Communal,calm and now showing signs of being omnivores.Perhaps they are really aliens,who are observing us humans :D =D =D =D

Scary,
My Tanzanian yellow leg is just as happy eating a pinkie as he is eating cricks or locusts. I know of one keeper who always feeds his scolopendra on hamburger pate( minced beef)

This is supposed to be top secret but somehow leaked out...
I can't believe it's becoz of the B*TCH, no, I mean the PEACH...LOL =D =D

They can even crawl over your face while you are sleeping. They lay eggs into your holes, say ear holes, eye holes and whtever holes you can think of... :eek:

1 year later, they are going to take over your body and.... (to be cont'd) :? :p

The mutilans are genetically modified, they have mixed genes, including some from me. Whenever they crawl over your face, you would feel like girls crawling over...:eek: :rolleyes: ;P

This is not scary, but horny!!! :8o :}

scarypoppins, I can't believe your pets are more scary than you Scary poppins! Scary poppins certainly owns some scary pedes!

and Cotton and Earth are just spreading these to us European and US hobbyist to spy on us ... but the Alien-idea of Melmoth could also be true
:eek:

Melmoth and Gonglyes, actually I know this top secret for long and that's why I don't sell any pedes! These pedes are in fact alien spies!

...they are going to take over your body,
and you would like pedes if you didn't before; :)
and you would be a manic if you have already loved pedes before; :cool:
and you are going to have the gut or the urge to get hold of them if you were a manic before... :eek: =D

obviously, some of the users here have been taken over....(to be cont'd)

That is so cool, I need to get mine some fruit to try this out. I am backing scarypoppins up on the carrion though. The only thing I can even get my mutilans to eat is dead crickets, or their favorite, dead mice.

Haha. Back to the venom of this species, I wish someone would do an LD50. I would really like to know how bad these things are.

Fruit

I got the new Elytra & Antenna Giant Centipedes book at the Northern Virginia Reptile Expo last weekend. I was suprised to read that centipedes will eat bananas. It said that bananas can be fed to centipedes for a short time while regular food items are not available. It went on to say that bananas are harmless to centipedes, but if it makes up their entire diet they will probably die early. Had anybody ever heard of this before?
