    " Sorry, I have no time for the forum for the next two years, I have to expand my house because I need space for my growing millipedes!" :hilarious::hilarious:

    I noticed a tiny centipede in my giant millipede enclosure. Looks like she's guarding a clutch of babies. Well, maybe they'll help me get rid of the dwarf isopods in that enclosure :rolleyes:
    I guess I should change the substrate at some point... But there are no small millipede babies atm in there, the only male I have isn't mature yet.

    One of my Mozambique caramels freshly molted. She's pretty but very shy.

    I lifted a piece of corkbark and caught Cameroon grey/cream stripe millis just starting to mate.

    Cameroon fat black is a poop machine.

    Juvenile A. gigas, I think he's about 1,5 years old. (I need to get rid of those isopods...)

    Nice pedes! If I had the space, I would totally get a fat Cameroon black. The Caramel pedes look lovely!

    Again, @Marika you wow me with your collection! Those caramels are amazing. But my favorite is the one in your profile pic - Species 8, I think? And those red millipedes you have a gazillion of... Gotta say, if I had that many isopods I'd reach for a blow torch! I finally got them out of one of my enclosures where I'd seen mating and egg laying and never had babies. I had to completely redo the enclosure. That was 3 months ago and I am still waiting on babies.. I love isopods, don't call PETA! I just don't want them in millipede enclosures anymore.

    Thanks, you have a great collection as well :) Yeah, I'd like to change that substrate, but I think some of the pedes might be molting, I haven't seen them in ages. I've had babies in isopod infested enclosures, but my Spirotreptidae sp. 8s are in that tank, so I don't want to risk it, they are one of my favorites too. My only male is still immature, so I'm not in a hurry though.

    Reposting some of the older pics that don't work anymore because of Photobucket. I don't have all these pedes anymore, but the pics are nice.

    Tuo on kaunista! (Was my structure correct there? I'm trying to learn.)
    My favorite is the Tanzanian yellow leg. Do you know the scientific name?

    The 8s are so green and big, but their eyes are so narrow and kinda annoyed looking... cute though!

    I like how narrow their eyes are. It makes them look like they're perpetually tired, which is really cute.
