Out of stock


Scolopendra morsitans is found throughout Australia and comes in hundreds of colour forms depending on Locality. This form is from around Shark Bay in WA’s mid western region. They have stunning alternating colours on the tergites (body segments) which are red, tan, red, tan etc. Juveniles have yellow and blue terminal legs and are more colourful with brighter red tergites and paler tan/orange tergites. Adults have greenish terminal legs and all ages have pale yellow legs.  This form should be kept with a dry and moist side of the enclosure. Our individuals are already quite “tame” to light and shouldn’t really bury or hide most of the time as they are used to it. S. morsitans is Australia’s 2nd largest centipede and grows up to 20cm. This is a large form growing to 15-18cm in length (Head to end of terminal legs). Centipedes continue growing after maturity unlike nearly all spiders, all insects and all scorpions.
