    I’ve had this pede for around 10 months, and I haven’t paired it with a male since I’ve got it. I first noticed the eggs around a week ago. Are pedes capable of mating, and laying fertile eggs almost a year later? And if the eggs are fertile, what should I do with the plings when they hatch? Thanks everyone! :)
     
  2. They may be infertile

    But I have also heard that some centipedes can retain sperm for a very long time, but I dont remember what species

    I was thinking that they weren’t fertile, but I’m still gonna treat it as if they are. Thx for the input! :)

    I can’t really see them without disturbing the pede.
