Meet our new friend from Africa:

This millipede is so huge. When some of the kids first saw it they were ghost white and all they could say was; “Where did you get it?” I think they thought it was from the garden at first. But of course they all already knew what it was. Strangely the “Extreme Animal” book I checked out from he library the day before had this very millipede in it. Coincidence or fate – you decide.

It has somewhere between 200 and 400 legs. Come on in and cuddle up.
