i know for a fact taht at least one S. heros castaniceps busted 9" and i have seen many that i believe were over teh 12" mark.I see these big reddish brown looking asian centipedes, which gets to be the biggest? Are there any centipedes that come up close on the one foot mark?
incredible.:clap: :worship:Yeah, you should be able to find them around where you are. I'd go to lakes there where there is bedrock around.
OK, something's been keeping me from posting this but, just to show it's size better, here's an old pic of me holding it while I was keeping it preoccupied with a meal. I don't do this anymore and I wouldn't try it unless you are willing to take the risk. I've been playing with these off and on since the mid eighties and thought I could always get away with it but after I got bit by a bigger one, I'm not interested in holding them anymore. I could really feel the weight of this pede.
thats the largest one i have seen in captivity, BUT i have seen some at my moms lake house in the cracks in the bedrock that were at least 12" and there was a fishing rod laying next to them. they were mating, and i wish i had a way to have gotten them out of the cracks.Big but not close to some gigantea I have seen. They were massive
