    These are a great alternative to the Giant African Train Millipede. These are also a very long lived species with some individuals living to around 10 years old. Optimum temp is 20 - 24  with a humidity of 60 - 75%. As with all millipedes, these animals require a deep substrate with plenty of dead leaves and rotten white wood. They also eagerly eat soft fruit and vegetables. Please note that these animals are very strong and therefore need an escape proof enclosure as they can easily force their way out if precautions are not taken
