Common Name: African Twister Millipede
Scientific Name: Unknown species
Status: Wild caught
Food: Millipedes feed on fruit, vegetables, rotten wood & leaf litter.
Fascinating millipedes, I have never seen anything like it! I pre-ordered them before a bug show and was rather disappointed to see a fairly small, slender species. They came described as 'green millipedes', I can't see any green but when placed in a plastic tub to be photographed they started thrashing around, twisting and turning until they they 'snapped out of it' and just trundled calmly off like a normal millipede. All very odd, I presume it is a defence mechanism? They are around 7-8cm long and I am assuming fully grown.
