I've been wanting a centipede for awhile and I'm considering buying a "Ethmostigmus sp - Blue leg centipede" from ken the bug guy's website.. I haven't owned a centipede before and I can't find much online so I thought I'd ask here. Soo.. 1.) How big does this species get? 2.) About how long do they live? 3.) It's normally 72 degrees in my house. Is this warm enough or will I need to heat its enclosure? 4.) How much humidity does it need? 5.) Is it very active?
I'd like a large active centipede that eats a lot. I don't really know much about centipedes at all and I'd like to be informed about how to care for one before I make a purchase, so any additional information I might need to know is appreciated. Also, If anyone wants to recommend a different species or US based website to buy from that would be great. Thanks

Actually, I think I might go with "Haitian Giant Scolopendra alternans".. any information about them or how to care for them will be appreciated Smile

If you do google=> Ethmostigmus you can find quite some stuff.
Like for 2 mins of searching. It is from Africa and no more than 15cm long max.

It prefers a drier substrate, but I believe a bit higher temperature.
It is given a quite high difficulty level of keeping (it healthy)

For all else, someone got to know more. Pedes, like I said, freak me out.
