i had one but it died. the larger exotic varieties (especially from Madagascar) seem to do very poorly in captivity. there are smaller species that come from africa (i think) that seem to do better

o , ok are they easy to find (as in easy to find a supplier/breeder) and do they require same care as a millipede?

Hmmmm. Pillipedes....are those the rolly-pollys? (I know. Childish name for them, but Itís the easiest to remember.)
If they are, I have never seen them in stores, but I guess there out there some where.
(Iím usualy in the garter snake forum, and the bird forum, but I like bugs too,so I figured Iíd see whatís here.)

Sounds kind of like the unofficial name of some terrestrial species of Isopoda. Probably closes related to "pillbugs" and "sowbugs."

pillipedes are glomerid millipedes. they look very similar to sowbugs, but are myriapods, not isopods
