A Lonely Heart

In search of my other half...

(That's me.)

Under a Damp Log

Now that you're interested, you might as well know my habitat. I reside in cool, damp places like under rocks or logs.


I might even be hanging out with my close relative, Chilopoda. (Centipedes)

Appearance

I have simple eyes, but sometimes none. I think it works well with my style.

I have one pair of antennae and chewing mouth parts. My body is long and segmented with two legs per segment. I think it's nice.

I usually come in brown or black.

Significant Points

I have a vast array of bacteria within my digestive system. They specialize in the types of food I eat: plants and decaying matter.


I reproduce much like many other animals, sexually. Asxeual reproductions does not occur.


Humans don't seem to care for me much. I secrete a foul odor when alarmed, and that keeps them at bay.
