oh I didn't know! thank you!
Hi and welcome to Project Noah! This is a very nice spotting. Your creature is a millipede and not a centipede, however. A quick way to tell the difference is by looking at the legs. Centipedes have one pair of legs on most body segments and are fast. Millipedes have two pairs of legs on most body segments and are much slower-moving. Again, welcome and we look forward to more spottings. Hopefully someone will recognize this species and will help with an ID.
