Nice and thanks for sharing. Are you breeding these?

Hi There,

Yes I am. I LOVE AGB's. I have had good luck so far breeding them. I think I have 14 babies now. Something like that...its hard to count though because often the babies are up in the rotting wood I put in there. They are also alllll through the cocofiber so I am very careful not to dig too much and harm them.

Hey Tabbie, how large were your females when you noticed offspring? Nice work!

Hi There!

Well I had 4 females. They ranged from 8" to 12". Mrs. Munch was a solid 12" she was HUGE. I kept 3 males in with them ranging from 6-7" they were much smaller lengthwise and girth.

The millipede in the photos is not an AGB, it's a Kenyan redleg, Epibolus pulchripes. It's not even in the same order.

I doubt she is. The 'baby' pictured very much appears to be an adult julid millipede, a common pest in millipede cages when substrate isn't treated.

Is it a problem to have the julid millipedes in your enclosure with other millipedes you are trying to get to reproduce?

In my experience, yes. They don't harm the adults, but they can out-compete the babies for food and few will reach maturity.

The julid millipedes were actually baby Apeuthes spp. (Thai Rainbow Millipedes) : )

UPDATE: I have over a hundred. They are SO cool. I have been told that this species breeds well in captivity.

I'm guessing the Epibolus didn't give birth to the Apeuthes :spider: It would be sp. rather than spp.
Congrats!
