both of these photo's above are of the same millie which is as you can see a flat plated millipede called C.cristatus.

other millipede below of a striped millie also known as the pink legged millie.


don't know what gender they are .
but the substraite they are on is a komodo reptile tropical substraite peat /soil.

i have discuvered that the flat likes to be above ground where as the pink legged striped millipede likes to go under ground .

my brothers choc millie is still living still hidden in the peat / soil .

and thats it. :D

this pink millie seems to blend in with the sustraite when buried in it .
cause of its stripes brown and yellow. :)

oh and on another subject my brothers millie this below :

the choc female .

well it had been buried in its own tank of soil / peat for a month and today i know why now.
as i found what looks like a baby millie.

it was long in body clear / white as you would say a miniture version of the adult choc millie.

but what gets me is it must of been mated before my brother got her.
cause she's the only millie in the tank. my brother keeps her in.

my millies the flat and the pink legged striped millies live together in a seperate tank.

but any way is that what a baby millie looks like. ?

and how many does 1 millie produce. ?
