Ethmostigmus rubripes spinosus ‘Indian Blue legged Centipede’

Need to get a good photo with no flash in natural sunlight to give it justice. Beautiful centipede.

The Kuranda rubripes has been calming down shockingly fast, especially for a rubripes. First impressions seem to matter a lot with this species.

One of my Ethmostigmus rubripes looks to be a female! First time a pede has dropped eggs in my care. Any tips?

A centipedes behind. Irrespective of their always odd number of legs, each leg is preceded by a pair which are slightly shorter than it, ensuring they do not overlap.

Azog takes a pinky mouse. Apparently vertebrate meat helps pedes get big; hopefully this guy can get to over 20cm. (The mouse was prekilled, just saying)

Thought I'd share this little clip with you to show you the fangs on this kenya blue leg centipede (Ethmostigmus tigomopodus) these are known to be one of the most docile species in the hobby and this is the only species in my coplection that I will willingly handle, this was during an enclosure upgrade this morning 😊 #ethmostigmus#ethmostigmustrigonopodus #centipede#giantcentipede#scolopendra#scolopendramorpha #chilopoda #dangerous #venomous #fang_gang#myriapod#petsofinstagram

Young Cairns green E. rubripes. From what I gather, their bodies start out almost black, becoming progressively greener as they grow, eventually taking on a subcrustalis-like appearance, except with blood red terminals and two toned legs. One of my favourite rubripes variants.

My dark tiger E. rubripes grooming in its water dish. I removed most of the mites you can see using a toothbrush and olive oil, not long after this pic was taken.

First time handling Light-Dark Blue, my young Kuranda E. rubripes. Surprisingly docile, especially for a rubripes, and sat still long enough for me to take this pic.

Juvenile Ethmostigmus rubripes aka giant centipede eating its cricket dinner. These guys are voracious eaters!
Juvenile Ethmostigmus rubripes aka giant centipede eating its cricket dinner. These guys are voracious eaters!
Obligatory "Don't try this at home" but I mean how many of you were really thinking of being this stupid.
Unfortunately I didn't have a choice. I fucked up. BAD.
.
Before I went away I condensed my bugs I wasn't bringing along to one shelf. This little guy, Kangaroo (he's "supposedly" an Aussie species), was still in a temporary enclosure. I left him some roaches, made sure it was nice and wet, and disappeared for 2 weeks. When I came back, he was on top of the substrate a lot. Great, I thought initially, the sticker on the side of his temporary enclosure must be giving him shade.
.
.
Then I noticed the mites. I had created a breeding ground for them in there. Not much ventilation so it was warm and moist, dead roach bits to attract them, and nowhere for Kangaroo to go for relief. .
I spent an hour scraping them off and brushing him down with oil before putting him in a bone dry "quarantine" enclosure. He hated the oil brush but once he 'figured out' the sharp metal tools weren't poking him but were scratching him, he calmed down and just let me do it, even leaning into the tool at times, especially around the head.
.
Fortunately everyone else had a dry enough cage they were unaffected. One of the other pedes had a few but a short scrape and a quarantine will take care of it.
.
.
I just hope I wasn't too late. Parasitic mites can be lethal.

Strange position to take a nap in, but who am I to judge. I have 40 less legs. Ethmostigmus trigonopodus, "blue leg" centipede, female.

Crappy phone photo late at night but my trigonopodus seems to have recently molted and should almost have adult colouration with it's next molt (deep purple and blue) I'm so happy with this animal. It arrived as a pedeling on the 30th September last year and has had absolutely no problems, always been a great feeder and has grown super quickly.

A local Ethmostigmus rubripes colour form. Crazy how fast and powerful these things are. Wasn't easy photographing it😅

Some cool finds today. Half banded E. rubripes and a C. aurantiipes (most likely) form I haven't collected before.

Ethmostigmus rubripes are an amazing species and they come in many colour forms so there is plenty too get in the future, this is a very rare form like I mentioned on the first post of this beauty .

Ethmostigmus trigonipodus or the 'Tanzanian Blue Ring' centipede! 
Found in a huge area across Africa and an absolute cutie. Swipe for a vid!!! #centipede #scolopendra #ethmostigmus #invertebrate #exoticpets #africa #africanwildlife #nature
Rare pic of a kuranda form rubripes sitting still for more than a second - this girl is in pre molt and is looking veeery dull. Last molt was last November.

This little guy's adorable and very well-behaved, even though it tried to eat my hand a few weeks ago (probably due to unfamiliar scent - soaps etc.)

A juvenile rubripes from Cairns. The pic doesn't show them too well, but its terminals are a brilliant orange-pink.

Received a Scolopendra Hainanum in the mail today from The Spider Shop, it’s in fantastic condition. I freaked out a bit as I accidentally let it crawl on my hand when I put it in its enclosure. I’ve since been observing it’s demeanour and this one appears somewhat docile. I wouldn’t say it’s tame like my #Ethmostigmus but it appears less antisocial than my Cherry Red #Dehaani.

Will definitely be sure to get good photos and footage, it’s absolutely gorgeous. #ScolopendraHainanum

Townsville half green/tiger rubripes. These chunky pedes are some of my best eaters, and seem to like fruit more than the rest.

Might be getting a true Kuranda rubripes soon, which have more vibrant coloration than this one. Hope I can get these beauties established in the Australian hobby.

This chunky South Australian E. rubripes ran onto my hand during a rehouse. I generally avoid handling large rubripes, due to their tendency to chew on everything.
