      ngl, I think millipede is kinda cute. I’m thinking about building a terrarium tank and keep a few of them as pet.

      It’s weird how when they have even more legs somehow they become less creepy. I guess it’s because they have to pack them in so tight and it starts to almost become cute.

          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.
