Wow, that's a surprising change there!!!! It's good to see you post again, mr.Vincent :). You seem to be keeping it pretty dry, what's the humidity like in it's tank?!?!

I keep half of the enclosure dry and the other half moist. Humidity is about 60%.

Hey Vincent :)
long time no see, all well ?

I know i've given you the "Otostigmus" name,...
but it's clearly incorrect !
I only had small plings back then to examine.

If you take a good look now at these centipedes you'll notice they don't have eyes !!! and they have 23 segments, making them probarly
Scolopocryptopidae

unfortunaly i don't have any left,... my last one died on my dec06

Now that you mention it you're right :) I never noticed it :8o
It could be Scolopocryptops miersii (Attems).
