Hi,

I am currently thinking about getting some giant African millipedes, I already have an earthworm millipede and I basicZlly have two questions.

1. Can I house them together or will that cause problems.

2. Can anyone recommend a reputable supplier of this species. I live in the UK in Norwich, and don't want to go a massive distance to get them.

It would also be nice to get both a male and a female so that offpspring could be produced.

Hope someone can help.

Trubshaw

I think I have found that the two species will be fine living together. However I am still having trouble finding suppliers. I have found a couple of online suppliers but have heard that some of these may not be great due to incorrect species being sent, or they are sold as generic millipedes as opposed to a specific species.

Other places online are out of stock or quite expensive in terms of postage and packaging. Hence why I would prefer to be able to go and pick some up myself.

Still looking for good suppliers in the Norfolk, UK, area.

It has just occurred to me that I could put forward an offer of a trade to any interested parties.

I currently have 3 MaCleays Spectre stick insect females and 6 males, all adult. I wouldn't mind trading either one of the females and upto 3 of the males in return for a number of A.gigas millipedes, I also have LOTS of MaCleays eggs which could be added to the offer. I really would like to get another species of millipede ie. the A.gigas as I have read they are easy to keep and docile which would suit my classroom perfectly.
