About Archispirostreptus gigas

  • These giant millipedes bear their name rightly - they can grow up to 30 cm tall!
  • Millipedes live in symbiosis with mites, which free the animals from other parasites and dirt.
  • But also the millipedes themselves make up a good cleaning crew. They eat carrion, mold, leftover food and dead plant debris and thus make sure that their environment is always tidy and clean!
