Description

This guy was pretty small for a millipede but it had some very interesting coloration. It was a light red color with blue detailing to the legs and antenna. He was found crawling around in my Backyard. He was one I don't recall seeing before. He was very cool looking and looked like a little neon critter. I picked him up for closer observation and he tickled. Those little feet feel weird when on the skin. It was a really cool observation.

Description from Wikipedia

Millipedes are myriapods of the class Diplopoda that have two pairs of legs on most body segments. Each double-legged segment is a result of two single segments fused together as one (the name "Diplopoda" comes from the Greek words διπλοῦς (diplous), "double" and ποδός (podos), "foot"). Most millipedes have very elongated cylindrical or flattened bodies with more than 20 segments, while pill millipedes are shorter and can roll into a ball, like a pillbug.
