Not sure what they are, but i finally got a decent amount of millipedes :)
Aside from some burmese i got from Mazzer :P
Got 6 of these are part of a trade, hope i can get them breeding, although they are only an inch or two at the min, no idea how long they take to grow.

Pretty species, I am a big fan of the single black segment next to the head! Odd how just one small change in colour in a localised area can change something from being fairly nice, to genuinely pretty!

If you give them pieces of fruit every now and then, it will help them along. :)

How many burmese did I give you? I wasn't sure how many I put in the tubs.

Afraid I got mine as adults. I see mating often, but have yet to see any offspring.

I have read that the species is fast growing and short lived. About 18 months from egg to adult, and another 18 months from adult to death.

Hey Morpho,

I was going through my tanks and checked on the Centrobolus. I had found the single male dead about 2 months ago. So I was quite happy to find some juveniles running around! I've only found 8 at the surface and hope for many more.
