Description

Found in the split on the underside of a watermelon from the garden. I believe it to be the same as others that I accidentally photographed through the year while taking pictures of other things...just guessing... looking at Genus Polydesmida..

I may be wrong but if I can count two legs on each side of each segment I call it a millipede
