Millipedes differ from centipedes in that their legs are paired in each body segment. Centipedes have only one leg per body segment.
Millipedes come in a variety of colors. Some have flatter bodies, while others are very tubular. Certain species are toxic. Most coil up when threatened to protect their legs.
