    I found this millipede outside . It is about 1 and a 1/2 inches long. Its black and has a yellow stripe for each segment. It is in the flat bodied millipede family. I would like to know how to keep it for a little bit. What do they eat/drink? How much humidity? How much heat? Thanks guys, Please help.

    I don't like your plan. Herp fanatics like to go out and find them but a rule I pledge by is NEVER to keep wild animals. It is cruel. Giant hands don't pick you up andput you in a vivarium... So it's best to get a captive bred so that it is not used to the wild. Cool find though.

    Without a positive ID, it is impossible to give good husbandry advice for any animal, which is another good reason to avoid wild-caught animals.

    Some millipedes can spray hydrogen cyanide, which can be irritating, and somewhat toxic. Until you know for sure yours is not one of them, best to just leave it be.

    I have identified it, at worst it makes you sick, its not deadly.
