Description:

There are more legs on this centipede than I've ever seen before. It's not easy to count them, but I think it's between 80 and 85 pairs of legs.
It was found in the soil by my grand-daughter Erin. Her pleasures are not as girly as you might expect for a seven year old; rummaging through soil has produced some interesting results though, as in this case.
