    HOnestly i wouldent worry about more being in the house, this one probably just wandered in on its own. there is something like 15 species of them in colorado mostly found in the south eastern part. I have found a few myself in the Pueblo area. they are non venomous but can bite ya pretty good! as for keeping one ive heard it can be tricky, round enclosures help because hey have a tendency to run really fast into corners and hurt themselves. but if you decide not to keep it or find more i would love a specimen =-)
