Millipedes


Author(s):
Abstract:
Millipedes have lived in what is now North Carolina for millions of years. Ancient mountain ranges gave rise to a large number of species. Today over 100 species of the colorful creature still reside in the Appalachians. While bright colors make them attractive to predators, millipedes produce foul- tasting chemicals that make them unpalatable to their enemies.
