    Today we watch the drama unfold as we introduce some giant tropical millipedes (Orthomorpha coarctata) into our Hacienda Del Dorado, a terrarium that is home to the 'Golden Empire', a huge colony of yellow crazy ants (Anoplolepis gracilipes). The action was heart-stopping!

                      AC: Wants to introduce millipedes in order to clean up decomposing plants and wonders if they can live alongside the ants.
                      Also AC: Let's throw them in a pile of ants instead of the plant rich corners to really find out.

But they way you narrate and showcase your bugs, your ants.. i only encountered you late last night but now i'm INVESTED.

                                                                                              I saw a snake once, it jumped out and scared me terribly, (Most likely because it was a black snake amidst yellow grass and bright flowers.) I didn't move. It looked very weak and unhealthy. And then it got near my foot. I was wearing boots at the time so it couldn't hurt but venom was still a risk. I didn't know what species it was. I also didn't want to hurt it. And then just when I thought we could part ways and I could go back to what I was doing. I saw three or four millipedes burst out of the snake. One by one out of various different places. I was Gazing in sheer horror and mild curiosity. But my God, that was an experience like no other. Just seeing those things covered in blood emerge and the snake head leap up and snarl. I was shocked completely.
