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 if they have curious hands. They grow to an average of 4 inches although 5+ inch specimens are not too uncommon. Some people have claimed to see 8 inch ones, but that likely includes the terminal legs and antennae.

Current specimens measure around 1.5 or so inches.
