They usually live for a few years but aren't that long lived by millipede standards. I think 3-5 is normal for this species, but it's hard to say how long yours will live since it already looks to be an adult or close to it.

Thank you! That's around what I figured, but I just wanted to check.

congrats on your milli .... keep us updated
Thank you!! He seems very happy in his new home! I gave him a slice of cucumber the other day, but it doesn't really seem like he ate any of it. Im going to try an apple slice tomorrow. Hes very active at night though!
