A very rare opportunity to own a fascinating creature, the caecilian !

Gymnopis multiplicata is a species of caecilian in the family Dermophiidae found in Central America. Worm like and legless they are a true fascination.

Its natural habitats are subtropical moist lowland forests, montane forests, pastureland, plantations, and rural gardens.

Gymnopis multiplicata is known for the live birth of their young, which hatch inside their mother. After the young have used up their yolk sacs, they continue to feed by scraping their small teeth along the insides of their mother until they are born. The Mother proceeds to feed offspring with a milk-like substance high in nutrition, that is secreted from the females body.  Gestation period is about 11 months. Females reproduce every two years, bearing 2-10 offspring.

They feed on small invertebrates and larvae, worms like wax and phoenix worms, isopods and crickets.

It is very cold in New Hampshire in winter so boxes leaving here will contain PCM22s and 60-72 hour UNIHEAT heat packs. Please open immediately and remove the heat packs. Boxes that sit all day closed up indoors [at Fedex or on your table] can overheat and kill the animals. Live arrival is guaranteed but not if I don't get notice within 2 hours after delivery confirmation. Please keep in mind that contents are very sensitive and shipping this time of year is tricky with temperatures varying greatly between locations. Help me get it right!
