    Default Primitive Millipede? Flat Armour plated

    I found these two wicked flat armour plated millipedes up here last week, i have since released them because they wouldn't eat anything I tried to feed them. I guess a rotting log is what they want but I would rather return them to where I found them. Has anyone kept or seen any millipedes like this in Australia yet?

    Sorry if there are to many photos

    Agree with Tarantula; the look very much like Polydesmids. I find alot of these in pitfall traps in FNQ rainforest.

    I photographed some (FNQ) on my trip back in September. They look awesome. They were everywhere at this one place & it was the only spot that I saw them the whole trip.

    Cool, I just saw heaps of the type that Bush showed, one of them was similar colouring to your one Jamanz, was a bit odd to see.
    2 Eastern Blue tongue's(1M&F), 1x Elo, 1x Lio (my 2nd wild
    caught scorp), 1 x C. tropix, RIP 1x 10cm Female Pseudo-crassipes (1st
    wild caught T), 1x Woma Python, a few sp of phasmid & a couple of other things.
