It is time to “make me an offer” on my tarantulas page!


Just drop me an email, tell me which tarantula/tarantulas you would like and how much you would like to pay for each

(I may or may not be able to match your offer but there will always be a reduction. It really depends how much I paid and the time put in)


Remember, once the reduction appears on the website you will need to order quickly or someone else may bag the bargain! (the price may only be reduced for a day or two so please don’t ask unless you are ready to buy)


If you would like a photo of the actual spider (any size) just email - [email protected]

  • Giant Red Legged Congo Millipede (Spiropoeus fischeri) Adult

Common Name: Giant Red Legged Black Congo Millipede
Scientific Name: Spiropoeus fischeri

Size: Adult
Status: Captive bred


Country of origin: Congo

Food: Fruit, vegetables, leaf litter, rotten wood

A large, robust, stocky millipede, jet black in colour (up to 18cm long). They have a shiny body, are most attractive and tend not to burrow away out of sight as many other millipedes do!

How I keep mine

I keep these 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 am using peat or coir on the base and adding leaf litter (Oak, Beech or other hardwoods) and pieces of rotten wood. Some millipedes seem to eat just the decaying leaves and wood but I find that the Giant Cameroon Black millipedes enjoy a little fruit/vegetables, especially apple, banana and cucumber.  Warmth and humidity are important. I use a small heat mat and make sure 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 and food.
