Digging in my garden for some isopods, or maybe centipedes, or whatever else I can find (came across some cute rove beetles but I digress), and I found 2 Storeria dekayi under an old bird bath. They were really docile, I'm guessing because it was a chilly morning, and let me pick them up and carry them with no struggle at all. I decided to keep them since we are about to till the garden and this is a very busy area, they stand a better chance with me essentially. I placed them in my "garden" tank...just plants and pill bugs, and immediately they began to mate (oh yea, forgot to mention they are male and female ) which went on and off for about 8 hours. They're viviparous so sometime in mid July I should see babies!
The male, I named Patchouli.
