WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CENTIPEDE AND A MILLIPEDE?
By Jade Hebblethwaite.
Millipedes belong to class diploda and are more rigid arthropods recognised by the half cylindrical shape.
Centipedes have one pair of legs per body segments, while millipedes have two.
While most centipedes are known for their speed, millipedes move slowly and burrow in the ground.
Centipedes and millipedes also have different diets because centipedes are carnivores and millipedes only eat dead things.
Millipedes and centipedes prefer moist, protected outdoor habitats such as rotting logs, leaves,bark and the undersides of stones .
Surprisingly, a centipede has 100 legs and millipede has 40 to 400.
