Artist's Description

Subject: North American Millipede
Location: Rockaway, NJ, USA
Equipment: Nikon D3100 w/105mm macro lens
Check Out All Those Legs LARGE

Millipedes are arthropods that have two pairs of legs per segment (except for the first segment behind the head which does not have any appendages at all, and the next few which only have one pair of legs). Each segment that has two pairs of legs is a result of two single segments fused together as one. They eat decaying leaf matter and enjoy dark, moist areas. They can roll into an armored coil as a defense against predators. If that fails, they can emit a toxic, bad smelling chemical that also does the job. This four inch long beauty had 160 legs!!
