If you’re just about to go to bed, I would put your phone or laptop down right now, because what you’re about to see is the prefect nightmare fodder.
Let me introduce you to cyanide filled millipedes, that also glow in the dark for good measure and see that, along with their cyanide, used to ward off predators.
Just seeing their eyes and hearing the word ‘cyanide’ is pretty much enough to put anyone off you might assume, but not everyone.
While I would want to be a million miles away from them, Paul Markek, who is an entomologist at Virginia Tech seems fascinated with them.
I’m really keen on these weird, complex evolutionary features.Advertisement
They’re all yours Paul.
