Slow and smooth,gentle and shiny, the Giant African Millipede can be found crawling on the forest floor in Africa. Their hard eco-skeleton shell protects them- like a shield- from vicious predators. It's antennai is its way of hearing, smelling and seeing: additionally it uses its 400 legs as a way of feeling and touching. Like all the other incredible animals in this text, it has a job. It is an detritivore(it feeds on dead organic materials, especially plant detritus!) another important job. Also, it lays 300-400 eggs every time it reproduces!
