Millipedes are long, segmented animals that are most typically round in cross-section (not flattened). They are generally slow-moving. Besides their first three body segments (which each have one pair of legs), and the head and tail, the remaining body segments have two pairs of legs. Millipedes with bright colors are more likely to secrete foul or toxic substances in defense—the bright coloration is a warning to predators. Millipedes are secretive and tend to hide in leaf litter or other moist, dark places, such as under rocks and rotting logs. Millipedes have a long fossil record and represent one of the earliest groups of land-dwelling animals. Apart from eating and reproducing, their most notable behaviors involve defense: They often curl into a coil when disturbed, and some can emit a foul-smelling substance.The Apheloria virginiensis is a millipede that has no widely accepted common name, yet is fairly common in the northeastern and mid-Atlantic U.S., and Ontario in Canada.
This millipede, recognized by its distinct semi-flattened shape and a “Halloween” coloration, shouldn’t be touched. It is known to release a cyanide compound when threatened, so avoid contact when possible. #donttouch #millipede #apheloriavirginiensis
