The name "millipede" is a compound word formed from the Latin roots milli ("thousand") and ped ("foot"). Despite their name, millipedes do not have 1,000 legs, although the rare species Illacme plenipes has up to 750. Common species have between 36 and 400 legs.

Millipedes can be easily distinguished from the somewhat similar and related centipedes (Class Chilopoda), which move rapidly, and have a single pair of legs for each body segment. However, unlike centipedes, millipedes are by nature not predators, and due to their slow, non-aggressive behaviour and simple diet of decomposing leaves, are easy to keep and ideal as pets.

Hi Aneta,
first of all, a very warm welcome to TN. Itエs always nice to see new members.
About your picture, I never saw a red millipede... I always saw black o grey ones, so this is a complete sorprise! For me the focus is not the best; it would be nice to see the hole body of the millipede, not only the face.
