Millipede

Description:

Reddish chocolate. Like a fast- moving worm. But has many legs, so not one! Antennae in front. Very swift = blurry photos.

Habitat:

Entered the house, from the garden presumably. Got swept up onto a piece of paper and deposited right back.

Notes:

Usually the millipedes I see are much fatter...like my little finger. This one was slimmer.
