Desert Tiger Centipede


Out of stock


Scolopendra polymorpha Desert Tiger Centipede is a great beginner’s species. Colors on this widespread southwest species vary. They like a slightly moist substrate despite being a desert species. These are venomous but not considered more painful than a bee sting. They are very fast and move erratically. Not a good pet for small children.

Currrent specimens measure at about about 1.5 to 2 inches.

Grow up to 5 inches or more.

In the video below you can see a normal color form of this species (banding often becomes more distinctive with age) at the 9 minute, 45 second mark.
