Has anyone seen this pill millipede before? I am refering to the pill millipede on the bottom right. Be nice if such a European pill milli existed. I suspect it would be much easier to keep them the African species!

Try Glomeris connexa - that seems to be pretty much like the one in your photo.

It it probably very small (1.5cm) like our native pill millipede, Glomeris marginata, this species is also rather attractive. I had several in a jar for a number of years, the babies are extremely cute.

I've never seen the small pill millipedes (they're a different order from the big ones offered from time to time and have a different number of tergites) but I hear they are easy to rear.

That was my hope! I was hoping for an easier to keep Pill milli. Does anyone have some? Or the native Brit species? While I had hoped for larger, I would be happy with any that can be kept alive for more then a few weeks!

You might be better off grabbing some pillbug cockroaches since they should be easy to find and are a little larger. I've seen them relatively cheap.

Your probably right Orin. But then I would have roaches, not pill millipedes. And my wife is not too keen on my bringing roaches into her house!

They'd look the same to her either way and they'd have the same chance of surviving in a house if you lost them, zero.
