they are great pets. the classic african giant black millipedes are very hardy. provided u dont live someplace hideously cold the minimum you need to start is a large plastic tub to keep it in, some substrate (dirt stuff) (coconut fiber is great, find at virtually any petstore), a waterdish (i use lids to jars of stuff i used up), and a millipede.

i personally prefer centipedes... but to each their own :)


try here...
Venomlist - Myriapod
there are usually people online daily to answer any questions... repticzones millipede place is not nearly as busy :)

yes they are good pets to keep they are quiet and they mostly come out at night so you can stay up and watch all night so your not missing anything through the day the noise of the feet on the wood is relaxing at night

 I think that a millipede is a great pet!

hi. I’m pretty sure if you like your teacher’s millipede, you could probably get your own. personally, i think they are great pets. I’ve never had one, but I’ve seen them in the wild and handled them. actually, they’re really gentle, but they might be a little scared of you at first. i don’t really know what you need for keeping one, though it depends on the size or length. good luck on your first millipede.
