Could someone enlighten me as to the specifics of this species. Its hard to find info. Size, housing, temperment, feeding, and anything else you can think of. Cheers.

a lot has been said before on this forum. try searching for it. if you have any specific q's after you have read through all the available posts on here i would be happy to take a crack at them

short summary: pretty things but might be harder than average to keep alive for a variety of reasons

I think you're referring to the centipedes often offered as "neon-blue-legged" from Tanzania ?

I'm not sure if those are in fact Scolopendra (Trachycormocephalus) mirabilis.
(maybe they are, but untill someone gives a proper ID to them i woudn't call them Sc.mirabilis)

I bet a search on Trachycormocephalus will bring up some info
Trachycormocephalus = an old synonim for Scolopendra btw ;)
