IMO you should have looked that up before you bought the pede...

Thats very true. Do you know the latin name for it?
I mean I could accomodate a spid at very very short notice with no knowledge but I dont think a pede is anything to be f***ed around with mate.

No clue about temperement? Its a pede, my guess is your that:
Lol, your gonna have fun! :P

Sorry but I know next to nothing about them like all the other things on this site. rolleyes.gif

But I did a quick search and found this...

CLICK ME

Because the name "Tiger Centipede" turned up a lot of results for different species from the U.S. to Asia it was hard to pin down any spaciffic information, but in the link there is information on a few species that I guess are the most popular in the hobby?

Anyway I can't say how good the info is as I don't keep the things or even read a lot about them, but I hope it helps in some way?
Cheers
Chris

Steve, you are not the only one to buy a pede blind, I bought one on impulse on Sunday, I haven't a clue what it is, but I will keep all appendages away from it. laugh.gif

Right, I have also kept Tarantulas for most of 28 years now, so understand fully how difficult these critters can be to look after perfectly.......around August this year I finally decided to tak the plunge & get myself a "pede" I opted for the Scolopendra subspinipes china species, approx 8 - 9 inches long, so probably adult, I then ended up getting three Scolopendra subspinipes barbados pedelings from a dealer in EUR, & lastly ended up buying a fully grown Scolopendra gigantea female, supposedly the largest pede on the planet, its 13 inches long from tip of feelers to terminal leg end, with a HUGE girth, so what can I recommend about keeping pedes.........well, compared to Tarantulas they are FAST & VERY unpredictable, they are dedicated escape artists & will attempt to CHEW their way from any container inc glass ( my S subspinipes china broke its fangs clean off trying to bite off the glass top lip ), keep them in a deep moist, never dry substrate, give them something to shelter under & never leave them in bright light, they hate it with a vengance, feed them like T's i.e. every week or two, a few crickets here & there & you should be fine.....but I'll again say, make sure they are 100% secured, as they will attempt escape every night, & you don't want one of these critters on the loose in your home.


Here's a shot of the gigantea......being sold this weekend though cry.gif
