I kept two of the plings from the original batch on the first page and they are sexually mature. They mated and now the plings are leaving the female. It looks like only 8. I had arizonensisXcastaneiceps plings but they all died. It's the only other experiment I'd try again. They may have died because of an accident I had back then, I could barely walk and had a kidney stone prob at the same time so I didn't take care of them like I normally would have.





female left, male on the right

Kind of got lucky really, I forgot about her and checked, never saw eggs, just saw her taking care of plings. I dug up a few more, so looks like there are 10. Going to see how they color up now.

Maturation in 2.5 years. Wow! Do you live near a plutonium mine?{D My WC pling from summer '08 still hasn't hit 4".

Cool to see a new generation come from X's.

Further evidence for sperm retention?

What has been unexpected is that they have more of a pure heros heros color so far, not as unusual as the original batch. I expected them to look just like the first batch, but so far they all have lighter terminals than the first batch did, like heros heros plings. Would it be strange if they all went back to the heros heros look? What would that imply, anything? Genetics is something I never had a knack for. But, have to wait longer of course.

Wow. I love millipedes... not so much of a fan of centipedes... (Because of their ability to give a painful bite and such) But those babies are cute in their own right, I must say. And the fact that they're kind of a crossbreed is too cool also!!:biggrin:
