Product Description

School teachers and bug enthusiasts; this is the one for you.

You will receive:

  •  32 oz. Plastic container with vented lid

  •  Coconut fiber

  •  Oak leaves, forest moss, branch

.To set up:

Remove the packing plastic from the container and add the branch and millipedes.

Interesting facts:

Millipedes can live for a long time, up to ten years.  They get along together and are active and entertaining.

The Giant Gold Millipede will make a great pocket pet and it is perfect for interesting class projects.

As large millipedes go, this is the most familiar native US species. 

Millipedes can be some of the easiest pet bugs to care for.

One of the great conveniences about keeping millipedes as pets is how easy they are to feed. 

Millipedes are omnivores, so they eat pretty much anything and everything. 

Everything from fruits and vegetables to bits of dried pet food are eaten but these should all be considered supplements.  Do not over water.

Background:

Range:  Throughout North America and South America, generally in warm areas.

Type:    Terrestrial, but will burrow to some extent.

Diet:     

Babies and adults eat romaine lettuce, apples, cucumbers, and other fruits and vegetables.

Millipedes should have a supply of calcium added to their diet, like calcium powder, which can be purchased.

Full Grown Size:   3.5 to 6 or more inches.


Growth:   Medium speed.

Temperature: 75 to 85° F.

Temperament:   Docile and calm.

Housing:   

Millipedes require good ventilation. Many customers are using our Mantis Habitats for more than one millipede.  They work well and come lighted and unlighted.

Substrate:   3 to 4 inches of coconut fiber and some sand.  

Millipede enthusiasts enjoy the fact that many species get quite large and can be kept together in colonies. 

Millipedes are generally safe to handle, but all species should be considered dangerous to the extent that some can emit toxic chemicals. 

Children should be supervised and hands should be washed before and after handling.

Millipedes are regularly used as "hands on" teaching aids by many educators around the world.
 

This Is Important

Millipedes require calcium for their exoskeletons.  This is a must if you want your millipede to have a long healthy life.  Without calcium their exoskeletons cannot develop properly.

We sell Respashy SuperCAL MeD Micro-Fine Calcium Supplement.  This is one of the best calcium supplements on the market.  

There is no shipping charge on the calcium and you can add it to your millipede order.
