How does one take care of them as pets. Can they even be pets? How would I get one?

By the looks of it I cant change titles of threads. But I would like to add im interested in more than just Onychophora but also peripatus and other Velvet Worm kin.

If such creatures are hard to care for what about the African Red and Black Millipede or Shongololo (Shang-gaw-law-law)

I'm afraid that I have no expertise in this area. I didn't even know what onychophora were! I found this article in Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onychophora.

Regarding keeping velvet worms as pets, there isn't a lot of information about this, but here is one site which gives a little guidance:

Plus I found this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqsveeI1E_U

Thank you, I very much like these forums and I wish these forums were far more popular.
