It is entirely ok to feed a Large centipede a small mouse every now and then. It is not cruel to the pede in anyway. They actually enjoy em and pede keepers will also tell you it is ok to do so.

If you mean it's cruel for the mouse. Then ok. That's just how some people feel. I am certain mice don't like being swallowed by snakes,chomped down by a big lizard or shredded by piranha but the feeder mice aren't breed to enjoy life. Lol.

So when you guys own these things, do you lock them too? Like many scorp keepers lock their fat tail species scorpions? I mean, Are they strong enough to push a top off without clips or locks?

Even my firebellie toads were strong enough to push the top off a tank.

I don't double tank or lock mine. As long as there is no small gaps and the lid cannot be moved then it can't escape. They are fast enough to bolt out of enclosures and if the centipede can get a grip or an edge to grab they are extremely good climbers.

I had mine in a large plastic viv and witnessed my centipede biting at the plastic lid in order to make a gap big enough to fit through. Which made me modify the lid and then eventually replace the enclosure. They will explore every inch of the enclosure and they WILL find and squeeze through very small gaps.
