Mighty impressive looking animal.

Saw an Attenborough documentary once with footage of a centipede eating a bat on the roof of a cave - would it have been a similar species to yours? Sorry, totally ignorant - if that's the equivalent of asking if the anaconda I saw on TV is like your scrub python then I apologise!
Yes, that was a scolopendra. Not sure what sp it was though. Possibly gigantea. I love the way the look. All glossy and shiny. I love the way they move. Purposeful. I love the way they hunt. And love the way they medothodly clean themselves. I also love the fact they're defensive and could knock you on your arse should you not respect them enough. They're absolutely fantastic animals.

Your 'pede is such a lovely colour. I keep a blue form E. Trigonopodus myself; such fascinating animals to watch. Generally quite docile compared to many of the Scolopendra though, I hear.

My big pede is very defensive as most scolopendra are. My juvenile Galopagoesis is an absolute head the ball. It's like an elastic band. Hope it doesn't change.
