Thursday 17th August - I will be having an operation on Monday 21st (3rd & final!) so I will need next week off but I hope to be sending orders again the following week. I will update this information when I know for sure.

Common Name: African Twister Millipede
Scientific Name: Unknown species

Size: Adult/Sub-adult
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.
