thanks. :)

these millies are my first as i have never kept them before.
so iam an apserlute beguiner on them. :)

I have now split the pair up my brother has the chocolate millie now in its own tank .
and I now have the black millipede on its own in its tank.

managed to split the pair up today quite easerly .
the choc was sleeping curled up so i just scooped her up in to a plastic throw away cup. and just poured her out into her own big tank .
and she did not move much either.
surprizeingly . :)

as you can proberly see from above I wrote she thats because the choc is a female she has leggs all the way to her bottom.

with no gap or special paire of leggs on 7 th segment.

the black millie is also a girl millipede to leggs all the way to the end of her tail.

the missing leg segment will be at the business end which is the head end .
the mating is done with the top quarter - third(ish) of the bodies coupled & the sperm transferred .
if you look up towards the front end , thats where you will find the missing legs :thumb:
