So I was getting ready to mist my bumblebee millipede tank and I noticed that my millipede was latched onto the underside of the tanks mesh lid. I have a piece of cling wrap with holes poked though it between the tank and the lid to keep in humidity, but he must have found an opening between the side of the tank and the plastic.

Do you think he did this because he needs more air or because he was just exploring? He didn't want to get off of the lid and when I finally nudged he quickly went underground. I'm still new to millipedes so i just want to be sure.

I'm guessing he just found his way to the lid when he was exploring what's your set up look like

Just exploring. If millipedes can get to the lid they'll hang onto it and crawl around for a while while they check things out.

Exploring. All of my millipedes have done this at some point or another if they can reach the lid.
