    No way, that's one is so cool looking. Is it missing on of its, uh, terminal legs? Is that what that's called... those two things on the back? Do they grow those back?

    Yeah... I figured Arizona. I meant if the blue morph was from a specific location or just a mutation.

    Re: Some of my collection....

    It's the Halloween pede!

    You take the best pics of pedes. They're always so clear. Haha, they always look so big, too... but when you get, like, a bottle cap in the shot it puts them in perspective.

    So, curious, why is that first pede on a sand mixture? (it looks like a sand mixture, at least) I haven't seen that in your pics before. Is it a desert species? I've always had 'pedes pegged as a high humidity bug but I guess it makes sense not all can be tropical if they can come from, like, AZ or CA.

    Re: Some of my collection....

    Yeah the "Halloween" pede is on a ~60/40 peat and cocofiber/sand mix, as well as the polymorpha. You could probably keep them on straight peat/coco fiber just as long as it is drier and they can burrow so pack it down good.

    Just the Polymorpha has dug a lot of his bottom layers of sand up, while the S. H. kept his coco fibre/peat layer on top so its less visible. I'm up to 4 different Polymorphas now and they are almost all bulldozers.

    They are both considered more desert pedes. But, had a texas banded heros that hovered the water dish and begged for water, just like I have a Subspinipes variation that hates when I mist and never comes out unless its bone dry to drink from a water dish only..Depends sometimes on individual preferences IMO but sticking to the basics is a must. Most of the Heros morphs and Polymorpha color morphs are all considered to be "desert" type pedes.
