probably Scolopendra morsitans, tho any pede I would be so happy with, currently banned in my house. Which tbh is fair I will get one once we dont have big paws in the house! Gives me time to learn
They are definitely different. One is from Mexico and the other from Brazil.Wow, that millipede's a stunner, but are you sure those two pics both show the same species? The reds and orange/yellows are distributed differently.
There is the Philippine Mint Leg, which should be called something to differentiate it from the mainland variety, likely a different species.
Yeah, I see different types of centipedes dubbed 'mint-legged', They seem to be different species but I had no idea if there were.There is the Philippine Mint Leg, which should be called something to differentiate it from the mainland variety, likely a different species.
Mint Legs is a sp. from the China/Vietnam border in Guangxi autonomous region. It is a maroon brown with slate sides, pale yellow antennae and electric turquoise legs. This was one of my dream myriapods and I am so glad to own one.
Do you know where they are from?Scolopendra sp. 'Philippine Queen' (as I call them) comes in a black body w/blue legs, orange antennae or orange striped body, blue legs, orange antennae, and then there is an all-blue morph.
As for millipedes, I want these but nobody knows what they are:
Indeed! I just took your advice, and found a new centipede to add to my drool list! This S. morsitans was found in Western Australia. It looks like a coral snake!...I found them on the site iNaturalist, a good place to search for unidentified species.
proof centipedes are snakes with legs
In California, it is excessively hard to import any type of invert that isn't a tarantula or millipede. And getting answers on what you need a permit on is exhausting.Unfortunately, Australia cannot export anything, so even if they do get into the hobby, they'll only be available for us Australians.
Woah. I am stunned at how many fluorescent species of inverts there are in my state. Personal fear is what keeps me from centipedes, however, I am probably going to tough it out and snag a fewI'm reletively new to the hobby (been keeping about a year now). Mine has got to be the Cali fornia species Motyxia Sequoiae.
Looking at all those Centipedes makes me drool. The significant other won't let me keep them.
Snaps :0The attached is always my answer to this question.
