this is a little community thing i have going on, this are all local wild caught specimens. while collecting we have seen some under the same rocks/trash with each other, so i deceided to try this and see what happens. so far they have co-hab'ed in a appx. 10 x 6" container for over a month without incident, each one has its own area that each other seem to respect and not intrude on (backing out when its occupied) 3 of them have burrows, 1 stays on top of the wood, and one just stays under in the cave area. thats five total, and if all goes well i'll have some babys. i will keep updates as things change for better or worse.

Great to hear that they are doing well! Definitely keep us posted on how they're doing. You'll find more than a few people here are interested in communal centipede attempts :p

Darn, thats a shame. That would've been cool if they would have cohabilitated with eachother. Good luck with them.
