A pair of juliforms and a pillbug. I believe the one on the right is the same as this individual, just with different lighting (this was with my camera and flash, the other with my phone, no flash)

I think these are rusty millipedes. I found 2 of them about 6 inches each. Found underneath a board behind the Nature Center.

Parajulidae? something else? This was a very active millipede, and thrashed about in my hand then tried to run away rather than just coiling up like the other juliforms seen today.

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.
