Today, I got myself a new pink footed giant millipede! It’s adorable 🥰 only 1 inch long at the moment, it will grow up to 4 inches total once full grown; his name is Lewis.

Here is his temporary home until he outgrows it, afterwards Im moving him to a larger Tupperware container. It’s one of the big houses from Dollarama, fully cleaned prior.

This is Morty the snail, still trying to identify its species. Until I find out if it can be co-habed with Lewis, they will be housed separately. It’s shell is 3/4 of an inch.

I’ll keep this thread posted with updates on their care/growth, for now, this is it.

Update: Morty is likely a rounded snail

Haha- not quite! I’d love another beardie, I actually saw three of the cutest babies I’ve ever seen on an outing today. Poor things were all skin and bones, I was actually on the verge of tears 😭

I was tempted to rescue them but honestly I can’t afford more than one at the moment- inflation is nasty! And as a uni student it’s pretty hard as it is, I only hope some sensible person could go and rescue them!

Those are neat. Does the millipede give off an odor? Some of the ones from back home had a pretty strong smell

It does have a slight odor but that is from its defensive secretions, it’s very mildly toxic which can cause skin irritation to those with sensitive skin. I personally don’t feel it.

Fun fact about said millipede: it’s the largest millipede species native to North America!

Oh wow that's friggen awesome 👌
I've debated on keeping a Manis or two, also debated on keeping some jumping spiders 🕷 i think both are pretty rad, but they don't live all that long and it would be sad when they pass.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE jumping spiders! But I agree, animals with such short lifespans are difficult to keep knowing they’ll die so soon! That’s why I gave up on rodents, J had a hamster as a kid and it devastated me when she passed.

Same here. But mine dragged the sheet on my bed into it's cage and destroyed it before it passed. Come to think of it, my mom may have sped up it's passing. 😲

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
