|Millipedes have antenna which are split up into eight segments which are short. Their bodies are also segmented with two pairs of limbs. Millipedes have lots of legs – (hence the name). Millipedes are animals of soil, inhabiting woodlands under pieces of bark, soil, stones as they like cold damp places. At the same time they become very water-logged very easily. So their environment has to be not to hot and not to cold/damp.
Millipedes have 2 pairs of legs to each segment of their bodies. Most millipedes are brown or black .Sometimes millipedes eat young plants or waste vegetables. You might find them under plant pots, stones, or wooden planks (pieces of wood).Females lay about three hundred eggs in soil (that's a lot!). Millipedes mainly come out in the autumn, in the summer and spring you might even find them in your house or in the garage. You might find them in the garden hiding in small spaces and if you find one and pick it up it will curl up in a spiral shape because they are scared .They might live under leaves. Millipedes mainly come out at night (not like us).They cannot hurt you. You will probably find millipedes in small cracks and gaps.
