My son is doing a science experiement and he needs either centipedes or millipedes. He is trying to condition them to respond to a stimuli and perform a certain action. We need about 30 or so.
Any ideas where I can buy some centipedes or millipedes? We are in Illinois.
Thanks.

You can go to the buy/sell/wanted section and find them there, but you are looking at hundreds of dollars if you go that route. I would do a Google search and fund what species you may have local and go hunting. Would be a good bonding experience for you and your boy. PS, where gloves centipedes can be dangerous.

I've got a ton of stone centipedes cheap but they're only 1/2" right now (and those are the big ones).
