Here is one of my millipede containers
Details:
Substrate: soil, dried leaves, wood, eggshells
4 larger millipedes live in it
1.5 to 2 inches of substrate
Thoughts?

I’ve never cared for millipedes outside of a laboratory setting, but it looks like you’re off to a good start. Their needs aren’t too difficult to meet.

Just out of curiosity, why would you get a new pet without researching it first?
Truly blessed to have incredible creatures, wonderful friends and my amazing family in my life!! I'm very thankful & grateful for all of them! www.thehealthyhermit.com
