Up until now Ive only kept phasmids, mantids and a snail. A few days ago I picked this little milli up :D

It was marked as a "Ghana mixed colour millipede" but looks like its an African Bronze (anyone know the latin name?). Im fairly positive its female and already adult (measures around 7 - 8 inches long).





Really friendly little critter ^^ is quite happy to come out of the enclosure for a wander when I open the lid.

That is a very pretty milli you've got there!

"African Bronze" I think is Mardonius parilis. I have never had them.

I currently have Mardonius parilis acuticonus, but it is overall black. Not as colorful as your's. Thanks for sharing the photos. I may need to locate a few like your's.
