    • Basic Requirements

      Thyropygus sp purple banded is a large, slender species of millipede growing to at least 25cm+. It is a terrestrial species which should be kept between temps of 22c-25c with a humidity of around 70%-80%. However this species does benefit from branches in the enclosure as some individuals do like to climb. When handled, the purple banded millipede secretes a lot but otherwise is a great starter species. It eats a phenomenal amount of dead leaves and wood but also, like many other millipede species, eagerly consumes many varieties of fruit and vegetables
