Hi I'm thinking about getting some millipedes but there are so many to choose from! Could anyone suggest some for me? My ideals would be- difference is appearance depending on gender and easy to breed. Size and colour don't really matter- I think they all look awesome! :D Thanks :thumb:

Probably the most commonly kept are the Giant African Millipedes and Giant Train Millipedes. I think they are both pretty much the same. They are the standard big black and brown millipedes you see they seem to do the best and are the easiest to breed. Also they are generally what people start with. I have kept Fire Millipedes before and they dont get nearly as big as the above but are colourful and tend to come out in the day more. There is also vietnamese rainbow millipedes, which also look quite nice, bit I find they tend to hide a lot more. That is a few of the most common ones seen in the pet shops. There is also a good few care guides and a video. If you want I can link you to them, just say

Hope this helps

Thanks, I saw fire millipedes on bugzUK and loved them! :3 I'll probably go for either A.Gigas or olive millipedes or fire millis. Videos and care sheets would be great!! Thank ya muchly ;D
