Finally able to log onto Photobucket again to upload a couple of images. I've noticed that the tergites on centipedes are smooth and shiny when I see them in the wild. When I bring them home and keep them long enough for them to go through a couple of molts, their tergites lose their smoothness, they get little ripples and small warps on them. They just don't look as good. Here's an example. The smaller pic is of rippled tergites on a centipede I've had over a year now. The big pic is of a centipede I found last week. They are much more smooth on the newly found pede, as always. I know this doesn't have to do with age so I've ruled that out. I'm thinking maybe something to do with diet or maybe too much moisture in the sub I've got them in. I'm letting the containers dry a little. If anybody knows for sure what's going on here, that'd be great. If nobody knows for sure, I would like to hear any opinions, speculations, anything.
