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.

  • Madagascar Ringed Millipede (Aphistogoniulus polleni)  Juvenile x 3

Common Name: Madagascar Ringed Millipede
Scientific Name: Aphistogoniulus polleni

Size: Juvenile x 3
Status: Captive bred

Food: Fruit, vegetables, leaf litter, rotten wood, jelly pots

A lovely species of millipede, they are very active and beautiful. Coloured, brown, orange and yellow. Adult body length up to 15cm.

How I keep mine

I keep my Madagascar Ringed millipedes in a plastic box but a fish tank would work just as well. I buy the boxes from Wilko or Tesco and make air holes in the lid with a soldering iron, a great little tool for burning the right size holes through plastic. I use peat or coir on the base and add leaf litter (Oak, Beech or other hard woods) and pieces of rotten wood. These millipedes seem to enjoy fruit, especially banana, apple and cucumber.  I sometimes add a little cuttlefish or powdered calcium carbonate which I am told is good for their growth. Both warmth and humidity are important. I use a small heat mat and ensure there is not too much ventilation. If you are housing the millipedes in a fish tank you may need to cover some of the air holes with cling film so that the cage does not dry out. I rarely mist my millipedes as I find they get enough moisture from the leaf litter.
