My neighbor was outside cutting the grass, she shrieked when she saw this on her brick patio. We have never seen a red and blue stiped caterpillar! Today is Aug 26, 2013. End of summer here in Michigan… We live on Lake Michigan and see lots of interesting bugs but this is a new one! I’m sending a picture and a video because he was using all his legs… Maybe eating something?

Hi Milli,
It is with the greatest of glee that we inform you of your namesake, a Millipede or Thousand Legger.  We will try to determine the species at a later time as we are just taking a break from stitching a seam.
