  1. Very cool! I read that their mass migrations are very useful because, as scavengers, they produce a lot of humus, which is then used by plants. Posted 6 days ago

"Ommatoiulus sabulosus", also known as the striped millipede, is a European millipede of the family Julidae. Its common name comes from its two striking bright longitudinal bands on the dorsal surface.
