Critter of the Week - Pill Millipedes

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:30 pm on 16 November 2018

Pill millipedes are shorter and wider than other millipedes – living in the soil/leaf litter, they don’t travel above or below it, but instead bulldoze through it with their robust bodies!  They look a bit like slaters/woodlice, but aren’t closely related, instead they have evolved a similar physiology via a different arm of the family tree
