Striped Centipede (Scolopendra laeta)

(3 customer reviews)


Out of stock


This small centipede (<8cm) is found throughout Australia, and like most Australian Scolopendromorph centipedes, comes in a wide range of colours and patterns depending on locality. Some from WA are Bright pink with yellowish stripes, and some others from Southern-Arid WA are yellow and tan. This form is from South Australia.

Like most centipedes, this species only needs moist coco peat to a depth of a few centimetres to be happy, feed once or twice a fortnight.
