Many many legs

Young S. s. mutilans (Cinese Red head centipede)

Stuff of nightmares…used to creep me out until I kept them


What’s the care like for these guys? What size enclosures do they need, what do they eat (aside from crickets lol), do they need any supplemental heating?
And as always, amazing picture!

Easy. Damp deep substrate. If it falls below 20 then can use a heat mat. Mine are about 24. They can be elusive except when hungry. I have a few diff species. They will eat any bugs, defrost pinky mice, meat, wet cat food they really like

I keep mine in plastic containers WITH LOCKING LIDS!!! they get out else


I wish that worked with me. My wife has like 25 tarantulas and I still look at them and chills run up and down my spine. I have 2 myself… I have an anxiety attack every rehousing day lol


my wife said she couldnt cope with these. She now feeds them lol. I want a vinegaroon now. I think she may leave me haha


If I ever get my dream old world T (the gooty sapphire aka Poecilotheria metallica) I know I wont look forward to rehouse day. My health is already frail and terrible and I dont need the nasty painful effects of this Ts venom ruining me for days or weeks.
