Milli the Millipede
Download the information sheet

I am from the Subphylm of myriapod.

My name suggests that I have a thousand legs but no millipede has ever been found to have that many legs. I like to curl myself up into a coil to protect myself as I have tough armour. All I eat is rotting vegetables.
