No question too big or small

This little guy was brought in by a county resident who found him (her?) wandering around his house.   It is a millipede (Narceus spp) that is common in Ohio.  It is one of, if not the largest, species in the east.  They are harmless to humans and are beneficial in the environment by breaking down organic matter sort of like earthworms.  This dude was released outside the extension office to complete its life’s work.  If you have a question for us at Extension give us a call at 740-385-3222.  milli pic
