Millipede (Narceus americanus)

Millipede (Narceus americanus)

Narceus americanus is, perhaps, the most common millipede species in eastern North America. They can attain a length of 4 inches. When threatened, they will curl up into a ball and/or secrete a noxious liquid that causes harmless skin discoloration.
