help!! found a strange bug, what is it

Post by bugfounder on Thu Sep 03, 2015 10:55 am

I found a strange bug this morning outside my shower.

I don't know what type of bug is it and how it got there.


I put it in the toilet and it was still swimming around! It must have special underwater powers.


Can someone tell me what type of bug it is, and maybe how it got there?



Here are the pics(warning it is scary):











Thanks!

Hello BugFounder, Welcome to The Bug Forum!

That thing is cool! It's a Millipede, a very large one at that. I'd love to find some native ones and keep them again Very Happy

As to why it is in your home, moisture, if there is any leaks anywhere then it will attract them. They dry out very quickly when they don't have water.

I don't think it has underwater powers, it was probably trying to get up and out of the water.

Millipedes are pretty good [usually] for the environment so next time I'd just place them outside. They don't bite and the legs tickle when they crawl all over you. It's awesome Smile

They also make very good pets, and eat veggies and stuff.
