    I had discovered little eggs in my bumblebee pedes enclosure a while back. Well today I noticed that those "eggs" are now moving!

    I also discovered my eyesight seems to be getting bad, lol. But these guys are SMALL! I mean, so small I was mistaking them for mites at one point.

    I think I posted the pic before, but I caught one of my bumblebees molting, and a few days ago one of my ghana red banded pedes was molting as well. It was a rare treat because I NEVER see my pedes molt!

    I'm not into millipedes as much as centipedes, but that "bumble bee" variation is very appealing. I just MAY have to get some now...Are they hard to rear/care for?

    Awesome molting pics too, man. I enjoyed looking.

    Hehe, thanks! They're not hard to care for as far as I can tell. They eat like hogs though compared to my other millipede species (mostly oak leaves).

    I keep them in a smaller tupperware with a heat pad on the side of it, a few holes drilled in towards the top, and lots of substrate with hardwood mulch, aspen chips, oak leaves, etc, mixed into it.
