Not sure what this is? I thought it was a slug but it has legs. Maybe just a slimy centipede?
Signature: Thank you
This is an omnivorous Millipede, not a predatory Centipede. Millipedes feed on decaying organic matter. This statement from BugGuide surprised us as we were not aware that any Millipedes were considered carnivorous: “Most eat decaying plant material, but a few spp. occasionally can be carnivorous. Some may also occasionally eat living plants.”
