One fascinating little Bug

This is one area where I’ve never given much attention too but it’s a really important one so I’m glad there are those out there that spend the time and actually photograph insects. As you can imagine this realm has some pretty good challenges to it. The most obvious being size but others such as lighting and holding still are all part of the equation. Well Millipedes are quite common where we were in Africa and being over six inches long they are kinda hard to miss. One of the most interesting features of Millipedes are there natural defense mechanisms. These guys contain a type of cyanide that it uses to protect it’s under side with by using ozopores to secrete the liquid. While there are many secretion types that various sub species contain non are really pleasant. Nevertheless these little guys till remain a staple for diets of many species throughout the continent.
