First true millipede

First true millipede

This is image of the first true millipede, which has been discovered by scientists in one of Australia's mining regions. The blind millipede has an impressive 1,306 legs - the most legs for any known animal ever. The pale-coloured millipede is 3.5 inches (95 mm) long and 0.95 mm wide. Possessing a "conical head" complementing its "beak-shaped mouth" and large antennae, the first true millipede of Earth is unfortunately blind. In the absence of eyes, the creature called "Eumillipes persephone" uses its large antennae as its only source of sensory input. Even though organisms were previously also categorised as millipede, no actual organism with over 1,000 legs was found.
