Animals, including insects are unique. They standout for the number of legs they exhibit. I cannot imagine having more than 100 legs. Can you imagine what you could do? Let’s take a glimpse in the life of those with multiple legs.
1. Millipede-Illacme plenipes (750)
2. Centipede-Himuntarum Gabrielis(354)
3. Centipede-Haploophilus subterraneus (178)
4. Millipedes-others (30)
Other millipedes other than the type in # 1 position are average. Many common species of millipedes have around 36 to 400 legs. It is still hard to count since there are 10,000 species which are distributed into 13 orders and 115 families.
5. Symphyians (24)
They are better known as garden centipedes and are basically soil-dwelling anthropods. They look like centipedes, but are smaller and shiny. As many of them get older, they grow more legs at each moult.
