Description: This Giant Millipede is about 8 1/2″ long.
Millipedes can have a varying number of legs and are sometimes known as the thousand leggers and can anywhere from 30-90 sets of legs. Although they do not bite, some millipedes defend themselves another way. They produce an unpleasant-smelling liquid from glands on their sides. This can result in small blisters on the hands of those that handle them.
