Desert Millipede

DESERT MILLIPEDE

 

 

RANGE & ORIGIN:  North America & south America

 

ADULT SIZE:  3 ½ - 6 Inches

 

VIVARIUM SIZE:  A large flat plastic faunarium or a 12 x 12 x 12 inch glass terrarium is great for a couple of millipedes.

Use 2-3 inches of peat soil as a substrate as they like to burrow. Humidity isn’t as important with desert millipedes so a light misting once a week should do the job.

 

TEMP:  A warm side of around 85f  and a ambient temp of 75f should be provided with a drop down to 65-70f at night. Humidity should be about 60-70%.

 

DIET:  Millipedes eat a mixture of fruit, veg and salad like romaine lettuce, apples and cucumber although they do prefer it to have gone off a bit before eating it. A multi vitamin supplement should be sprinkled on their food twice a week.
