North American Millipedes are fascinating creatures to watch. They are named for their "thousand legs." They enjoy the dark and need moisture, so it’s best to keep them in habitats with mulch type substrate and moss. In their natural habitat, they are often found under leaves or logs, so decor to replicate these hiding areas is best. They are vegetarian and enjoy a variety of vegetables and fruits.
