    I've a friend who once had an iguana and found him quite a charming fellow in his own quiet way.

    True. As with most creatures, getting down to eye level helps. Being able to tip up the EVF on my GF1 is a boon for getting low enough.

    Hard to see but I don't see any mites on that millipede! Are they there? I thought that all millipedes had them mites - kind of a required symbiotic relationship.

    Yes you are right all milipedes have mites they do need them to keep them clean, these are the red ones that run quite fast not the white one sthat look like bubbles, However you should rarely see them, if the milipede gets too many mites it can make it sick or worse kill it. cleaning with cotton buds dipped in rubbing alcohol is required on a regular basis to keep the number of mites low.
    Sorry if thats too much info lol
