Bronze pill millipedes (Oniscomorpha)
$12.00 – $37.00 excl. GST
These are millipedes that can roll into a ball, like Armadillium isopods (commonly called Pill bugs or Rolly Pollies)
Like all millipedes, they feed on decomposing organic matter like soft pulp wood and fallen leaves.
These millipedes are about 3cm Lon when not in a ball and are from Northern QLD Rainforests.
Unlike many millipedes, these do not have a defensive odour, which makes them ideal for kids as they will not stink and stain hands.
