    The mites are either food or dirt mites and have no interest in your crestie-I promise

    I have a lot of experience dealing with mites for various reasons. Food mites are actually really nice to have in vivs along with springtails. They live alongside isopods and springtails harmoniously and keep everything clean as well! Food mites and dirt/beetle (benevolent) mites are both lightly colored-usually white.

    The americanus had greyish mites. I didn't notice them at all at first because they were the same color as the millipede.

    Here's new pics!

    Sharing a vine.


    Lol you so silly, Millipede!

    I loved my Millipedes. I'm glad you shared your photos.

    I had two Florida Millipedes which I picked up, as adults, from a local reptile show. I am certain I had two females.

    I then ended up with a lot of little worms. Only they weren't worms but baby Millipedes! I raised my babies, with my adults.

    Everyone was housed in a small Exo Terra with substrate, corkbark (which they broke down over the years) and other decor. I fed them cucumber slices.

    I eventually lost them all. My last Millipede lived to be exactly 2.5 years old. Lifespan is 2 years. I guess I was doing something right.

    I never had any issues, although they did carry their mites, which is an important part of their eco system. I never got "skunked" but I kept handling to a minimum, only removing them when I moistened their substrate.

    I would love to have another one or two, as I really enjoyed them. Here is a picture of one of mine.

    Millipedes in a crestie cage, what are you crazy!?

    Just kidding, this is my 2yr old Thai milipede, "MilliPete" that also lives with my crestie.
    Yours is so cute! He looks pretty big too.
    I didn't know more people kept these types of millipedes with cresties

    Mine doesn't have a name ._. I have no many animals without names right now.
