CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Florida Ivory Millipede (Chicobolus spinigerus)
Florida Ivory Millipede (Chicobolus spinigerus) is detritivores, breaking down both dead plant and animal matter returning the nutrients to the soil. They are harmless so if you find them inside, just move them back outside where they can do some good.
They are sometimes raised as pets, apparently they have a lifespan of up to 10 years. This guy (gal?) was walking across the patio at night. They are mostly nocturnal.
Millipedes are eaten by frogs, lizards, some beetles, some birds and their main predator, the shrew.
