Millipede enthusiasts enjoy the fact that many species get quite large and can be kept together in colonies.
Millipedes are generally safe to handle, but all species should be considered dangerous to the extent that they can emit toxic chemicals.
Children should be supervised and hands should be washed before and after handling.
Millipedes are regularly used as "hands on" teaching aids by many educators around the world.

Millipedes require calcium for their exoskeletons. This is a must if you want your millipede to have a long healthy life. Without calcium their exoskeletons cannot develop properly.
