Species facts:
S. alternans is a species wide spread acrossed the Caribbean islands. It inhabits tropical forests and is a shy species, seldom visible. They are extremely slow growing and possibly one of the longest lived Scolopendra around. They can grow to astonishing sizes depending on the variant, rivaling even S. gigantea with some Hispaniola variants hitting 12+". It is the best bang for buck in the size range/price ratio by far. Keep in mind the reclassified S. longipes is included here as it has identical care requirements but is typically much smaller then the rest of the "alternans group". Beware as these can pack a nasty punch and are a moderate level centipede to keep.
