Blue Tiger Centipedes

Postby Peacefulward » Thu Oct 05, 2017 7:12 pm

I recently saw some blue tiger centipedes for sale, and was interested in them. However, I can't find any info or care sheets for them online.
I've never owned a centipede before, but I hear they're aggressive (so care needs to be taken, and no handling) and that all larger species are venomous to some degree. And since I can't find out how venomous the blue tiger centipede is, I'm a bit wary to be interested in them...

Does anyone here know about them?
5 Dogs, 2 cats, 2 leopard geckos, 1 guinea pig, 1 axolotl, and a coatimundi currently in my family. :)

Exotic "wishlist": red fox, arctic fox, gray fox, bat eared fox, fennec fox, mink, muntjac deer, owl (any species).

It's just a color morph of regular tiger which you should be able to find some info on. Claims about like a bee sting, but of course personal reactions can vary.

We had a centipede at work that bit a coworker and he had to go to the ER--turned out he was okay, but he needed to be on pain medication since I guess it hurt super bad. Not sure if these centipedes are the same, but the general rule "look don't touch" likely still applies. They're really neat-looking, though I admit they kind of give me the creeps with all those legs.
