im just wierd.I'm pretty sure all millipedes secrete poisons . . . and why would you want a cute feeder? :?
yah, i got some discoids goin, but i was hoping to find another feeder to add variation. i dont mind it being slow developmentally, but poisoness feeders dont work so great.Millipedes are also kind of slow on the developmental speed. That's why roaches are so popular.
this is true-ish.... but in all the actual hardcore lit i have read the terms are used interchangeably. in practice, i adhere to the poison-ingest/venom-inject standard though.Poison = harmful if ingested or absorbed through the skin, eyes, or respiratory tract.
Venom = harmful if injected into the bloodstream via organs used specifically for this (fangs, stingers, etc.).
nah, sometimes they just taste sour =PMillipede toxins fall into the first category -- if they bite you, they bite you, and that's that. If you eat one or lick the glands along the length of one's body, you'd be in trouble.
the big ol millis would not make much sense to use as feeders, but i was establishing a multi-special colony of local minis to start experimenting on. seems like it would take about 3 years to get a full blown feeder colony up and running. i had many babies in ~9 months but then a mold bloom wiped out all my efforts.do all millipedes produce poison?
im looking for another feeder to breed, and millipedes look fun and cute.
are there any out there that are not poisoness?
