6 photos. This tiny millipede is between 1-2 inches in length and very slim. I found it on the cold steel of the kitchen sink. Not wanting it to curl up and die there, I took it and placed it in a clay plant pot of basil next to a sunlit window. It immediately crawled up on the edge of the pot and began pacing up and down, dancing for my camera.
This one made its way into the house, but usually they are outside on the ground or under rocks or leaf litter.
