I went to the petstore today and they had gotten a new shipment in. A fire milipede and a pair of baby "pink" milipedes (What he called them) I only saw the underside, which was pink.




Any idea what these could be?


I know it's vague, but it's worth a shot =p

Hey Valael take a look at the pic in this link. I just bought a Red Milli and its lges are pink. It may be the same as what you saw?

It's kinda hard to tell from your pic -- it's kinda distant. I actually decided not to be lazy and looked them up (I went and looked at the Millis up close today) and they look pretty much like:

(If the pic doesn't work, copy and paste the link, don't click.)


Except they're 3ish inches long.



I'm so very tempted to buy them and his fire milli, they're awesome looking.

Okay, I just got 2 of the millipedes pictured in Valael's post... but I think that they are listed on that site under the wrong scientific name. They list it as N. Americanus but none of the other pics of this species on the web seem to correspond with Valael's picture. So what do I have?
