I've had 6 scarlet millipedes for a month or so and had never sexed them. I'm getting 12 more and wanted to make sure I have a colony with mostly females. Any time I see one on the surface, I try to sex it - they are HARD to sex! But I outsmarted them. I took a glass cube with a smooth glass bottom and placed each millipede in it. I took a close up photo from underneath and blew it up on my pc screen. How do you sex those little ones??
