    I don't know how I ended up at the video but I watched it. He's prob in the US, @ around 4:15 he starts messing around with some kind of millipede, anybody have guess? Too far away to get a good look at it of course.

    Most likely some sort of polydesmid?

    That's what it looks like, the size caught my attention and he has southern US accent so I was thinking he's in the US. What sps. gets that big in the US? Maybe it's the camera making me think it's bigger than it is.

    Probablt apheloria tigiana or rhylodesmus sp. based off of the yellow underside/legs. Also these two seem to be the largest species in the US. I think it might be the latter because of their more southern range and coloration compared to the one in the video.

    Yeah I think you're right, I bet it was an Apheloria sps.
