      You know, until you posted this comic I never really put it together that millipedes are generally not predators. I guess that also explains why I’ve always instinctively found them less scary than centipedes.

        Yep, millipedes are chill and mostly munch on dead plant material. Centipedes, on the other hand, are carnivorous little demons straight from a nightmare.

        Case in point

          Well, the only “evidence” in the video is the commentator repeatedly saying that these centipedes are creepy and horrible. But they also mention how important their role in the ecosystem is. So, I think it is a pretty cool animal! But I don’t get why people would be creeped out by centipedes in the first place.
