I caught this guy when visiting my aunts house up in the mountains in CA. I found a smaller one but let him go and brought the bigger one back with me. I have never been to interested in them...but I have to admit they are pretty crazy as a pet. Feeding him has been awesome. He has a lot of blue/green colors as well.

Nice. Very Happy

You think they can be found in Southern CA?
I'm thinking of going to Los Padres National Park near Santa Barbara this weekend, can be seen on google maps.

Well I went and visited my aunt again... despite snow being on the ground I managed to find 2 young centipedes. They are about 2 inches in length. Now the most interesting part is how different the 2 look. one is from my aunts house (extremely forested) and the other was from my grandparents cabin ( dry and rocky almost no trees).

It appears that the population from my aunts are mainly orange with no blue in them. The ones from the cabin... appear to have lots of blue. Just an observation... heres the pics. Its just so interesting since my aunts house is only 1 MILE from the cabin.....
