I'm considering one of these beasts to add to the collection....how humid do you typically keep the substrate with these guys?

Click here for caresheet (http://www.petbugs.com/caresheets/S-heros.html)

check other caresheets too to make sure all facts are indeed facts (as far as facts apply that is...)

Basically, when keeping these guys (scolopendra) I find keeping them all around 70-80% humidity works for them all. Almost a universal kinda thing, but its definately worth checking into before purchasing an animal.

For me, I keep that humidity rather easy, just make sure the substrate is misted when it starts to look dry. Not wet, just moist is enough. Cobra mats work well heh. I almost never have humidity problems. I have problems of things drying up fast but not much of a humidity problem if misted regularly.
