Putting the ‘milli’ back in Milli Vanilli… (and by Vanilli, I mean ‘pede’)

The only millipede that lives up to its name was rediscovered recently and it sure gives me the willies.

This millipede has more than 600 legs, about twice the average millipede — despite the name which means “thousand-legged.” Of the estimated 10,000 species, only one, I. plenipes, comes close to living up to its name and thrives only in California.
