i have 2 haitian centipede juveniles. i'm curious at something many about centipedes.
but for now i will ask a question about that excrements.
you can see many small round materials in white on the pede's excrements.
what are these? it looks kind of special in my eyes. :?
i could also see these white spots from the excrements of my S. subspinipes dehaani(vietnamese) last year.
they were sticked on the surface of excrements.
some materials to help pede's digestion or something else? :?

It might be urates (sp). If I'm not mistaken I believe that's the equivalent of centipede pee. I could be wrong though.
