Get a tetanus shot. It is a good idea to get a shot every 10 years anyway. I do.

Hi,

if centipedes are from different species then it should not be possible to cross-breed them (additionally i suppose people still can't tell male from female with a 100% reliable method).

Since Sc. spinosissima once belonged to the Sc. subspinipes-group (Sc. subspinipes spinosissima) it was revised as a new species later on (what i personally consider as reasonable from a theoretical point of view).

If you document a succesful mating between Sc. spinosissima and Sc. subspinipes with a healthy clutch which is able to reproduce again, then i guess you make history for the centipede scene. ;) Good luck!:)

This makes me think that the Biological Species Theory (Hennig) is still being used. That makes me happy! :)

Hi,
I hope you are better in the next days, you have to consult a doctor, maybe you have anaphylactic shock.

I will have TT and HTIG in a few hours from now. I am waiting for my nurse cousin. Should I need a doctor still? Even with a shot of these vaccines?

Oh, thats' just a theory and how it is used at the moment for centipedes AFAIK. I guess if we find out more about cross-breeding and maybe hybrid-species then this theory could become unusable. (Still i think it's a helpful indicator to define new species). :)

@spade:

it is not a sign for an anaphylactic reaction but a sign for an infection (like sepsis!). you need to see a doctor soon.

Im sure your not the only one :( But Id love to have an Arowana, even if it means feeding it pedes (sarcasm). I would just feed them goldfish I think, but oh well, hundreds of pedes get their fangs clipped everyday your not hurting anything lol.

what do you think about this link: http://www.petbugs.com/caresheets/S-subspinipes.html

Maybe thats why the bite is so painful in my part.

And maybe that's why I've caught the orange and yellow legs same place with the Scolopendra subspinipes subspinipes. Maybe my centipede is the one in the link.
