Here are the 2 species of Scolopendra we find in Kansas.
and S. polymorpha
Great pictures! We really should post some pics of our centipede (scolopendra Subspinpes) - not quite big enough for food the size in the first pic yet but munching on crickets so will be growing big in no time!
Ok here he is... not such a poser - was trying to hide from us taking pics of him As I said, not so big that he can eat mice yet, but a gorgeous specimen
how long are the lifespan of average giant centipedes???
I don't know for sure, but I am under the impression that they only have a short lifespan - only a couple of years? Perhaps Brian will know more?
great pics, but I dont much care for centipedes, they give me the eeebiejeebies, lol, stick to my Ts,
The lifespan for the average centipede is....no one knows. Some in the hobby have kept soem in the scolopendra genus from pedeling to death for a little over 10 years. I've had one of mine for almost 4 years now and I bought it when it was already an adult.
Bitis that doesnt look like a subspinipes but lemme check again...
Oh and nice pics iturnrocks. I love that heros. I've been looking for one but dealers rarely have them.
Bitis that looks like a Scolopendra Heros. I'm not sure which subspecies of the Heros but it really looks like one of them. Yellow legs, black body, red head--heros markings.
If you can get close ups of the head, antenna, and a couple more pics of the whole pede, i can double check but im almost sure you own a heros, CONGRATS
Here are some pics of my pedes.
Here is one of my early animations I did from a photo of a S. heros.
I was just learning how to use imageready, so the results are not all too amazing.
i like all the colors of everyone's centipedes but i'll just stick to looking at pics. i like that little animation. its cute.
Well did I help answer some og your guys' questions?
I like those little critters, have to add them to my wish list. lol
omg, ever since i saw a centipede go after a juvenille iguana on the discovery channel, i just can't take it. They freak me out! nice looking though.....for a bug. (not really a bug person)
same here, prefer scorpions and Ts
when i was young, i helped out in the garden with mum, and sometimes u get to see these big pedes. and boy, they're real scary
Those give me the creeps!!!!!
I can't even stand to see crickets much less something with THAT MANY LEGS!!!
You can keep them!~ LOL
Best word to describe what I felt after seeing that half eaten pinkie photo =)
Separate names with a comma.
