Millipedes

Pin It

Our yard is a treasure trove of small fauna. We leave boards, stumps and other pieces of wood laying in places away from traffic patterns, undisturbed, to provide a habitat for these critters. After a good rain is a great time to go exploring to see what has crawled under a log to hang out. Today, turning over a board, I found several of these millipedes clinging to the underside. They all got away before I could take a good photo. Then I spied this creature on the ground where the board had been laying. Click on photo to enlarge.
