We have had Cedric our Giant African Millipede Cedric for 2 1/2 years and he is a popular part of our animal family attending birthday parties, corporate events, schools and clubs, per-schools etc.
Cedric comes from East Africa in places such a Mozambique and Kenya. His species is mostly found living in forests.
His species of millipede is one of the largest growing up to 38.5 centimeters long.
His defense if he feels threatened is to curl up into a tight spiral exposing only their exoskeleton and secreting a smelly liquid that can be irritating.
Millipedes eat all sorts of food including bananas, tomatoes, lettuce, apples, cucumbers, fruits, vegetables. They also need a supply of calcium which can be added to their diet in the form of calcium powder or a cuttle fish.
Cedric is a popular part of our events and the children find him fascinating.
