Orthoporus Gold Desert Millipede
These Texas millipedes are only seasonally available. There are several Orthoporus color phases around the country and this one is sometimes called Orthoporus "Gold" phase. Orthoporus species are the longest US pet millipedes. These are wild caught and nobody has really successfully bred them in captivity with any regularity in the 30 years they've been kept in captivity. Being wild caught, they may have some missing legs but they are still big and beautiful!
Millipedes require a substrate of mixed organic matter (see related products, below).
Measuring at around 4 inches.
