We have some cool ones that live around here. They are very large, black, with orange tummies. I love playing with them. I might need to try keeping a few.

millipedes live, breed and feed on rotting wood, and leaves... I had to Field collect supplies for mine :/..
Which bring me to a question... Is there anywhere to buy oak for the millies?

Most of the ones I've caught curl up and "die" and wait for me to put them back down...they also have a sweet/nutty smell from the natural cyanide they produce o_O

They are pretty docile. I love picking them up when doing group walks as their size is pretty impressive. It normally freaks a few people out, then I get to educate their ignorant butts on how cool these guys are.

In regards to the cyanide you just need to make sure you wash your hands any don't lick them or anything...

Some new pics of my new millies! I got 4 bumble bees and 2 rusty millies, could only get pics of 3 of the new ones, the others already went into hiding :p
I also added a size comparison pic of my Florida millie and one of the bumble bees.
