Coronavirus (Corvid 19) 

Ginny's Jungle is unable to run at present but I hope to resume in the New Year! I am therefore concentrating on breeding lots of interesting bugs for my online business. I have added the following to the regular terms and conditions:

1) I will despatch orders as soon as possible (you will receive an email with the tracking number once the parcel has been despatched).

2) Royal Mail are doing a good job, they are still guaranteeing next day delivery but it may possibly be a little later in the day than usual.

3) If a refund is required for any reason this will be given in the form of a voucher (to be used on my website within the following 6 months)

4) You are welcome to call and collect your order from me. Simply let me know what you want and when you would like to collect.

5) If you would like to come into my bug room, please let me know in advance. I will need your details, a mask will be required and I will supply hand sanitiser (High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire HP10 9LH)


Please feel free to call with any enquiries, I am available Mon-Friday 8am - 4pm on 07971 838724


  • Black Headed Red Fire Millipede (Centrobolus species)  Juvenile

Common Name: Black Headed Red Fire Millipede
Scientific Name: Centrobolus species

Size: Juvenile
Status: Captive Bred

Food: Fruit, vegetables & leaf litter

A beautiful red millipede with black markings (adult size up to 6cm). They originate from Mozambique.

How I keep mine

I keep my Red Fire 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 eat just the decaying leaves and wood but I do occasionally add a little fruit/vegetables, especially apple and cucumber.  I sometimes add a little cuttlefish or powdered calcium carbonate which I am told is good for their growth. This species is easy to keep and breed, 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.
