Default New Scolopendra Vivs

Figured I would post this here as it is not dart related! Although I sumise that some frogs in the hobby share native ranges with these monsters.

Just finished my two vivariums for my Scolopendra Sp. "Drawins Goliath" pair. Have it setup standard with hydroton, barrier, agb, and leaf litter on top. Lightly planted to give more roaming room.
I plan to rehouse in a year or so as they mature...perhaps 20 longs or the 36" short exo's.

I wired some 10w outdoor flood lights (6k temp) to 110 plugs and they are working great. The plants in the vivs are cuttings rooted under the light for a couple weeks to test it. I plan on making a couple aluminum arms to suspend them above the tank at work.

I wont be misting heavily like a dart tank, I have an rs400 set to 12 secs twice a day, this seems to be working well as the cutting have grown a bit.

I didnt want to break out my mistking setup as all the tubing is setup for racks I have in storage Ill be using next year, and this was on clearance locally.

Anyone else ever keep inverts around here?

Am I safe to assume a bite from that bad boy would hurt a bit?

Pretty cool.

Not too bad. The South Americans have a very mild venom on humans from what Ive heard from first hand bite reports. Most writings on the web denote the venom from the species "Subspinipes" and blanket it to all centipedes....espicially little spoof articles. The breeder I aquired mine from put it in between a bee and a wasp in term of effect.

Nice, Scolopendra spp. are so cool!

I used to have a few, but I ended up giving them away since I would sometimes wake up in the middle of the night and have to go check if they were still in their enclosures

I'm a nervous wreck...

I feel you lol, thankfully these are most likely gigantea or galapagoensis (possibly a sub variant of either as well).
