I recently discovered that I find spiders and centipedes captivating. I am currently building a habitat for a Scolopendra heros castaneiceps, I hope to get incredibly book-smart about them before I try my hand at caring for one. I have only a couple friends that show any interest at all in my new pastime, so I'll just have to rely on the community here to share in my new passion.
