Name that Bug!


Randy found this really gross millipede in the yard today. 
Or maybe it's a centipede? 

It was almost pretty.
I looked for it online to identify it, but couldn't find it.

I named it Emma.  A girl's name for a pink bug.
After photos were taken of Emma, she was returned to the yard from where she came.






Any ideas on what kind of bug Emma is?

CeeCee - Thank you so much for identifying Emma!!! That proves it's a millipede common to this area. It's an Apheloria virginiensis. I should have known!

Cindy - I thought it was pretty neat how it's legs all moved in unison. It was neat to see it walking.

Farm Girl - I don't like bugs, really. If it was a spider, it would be dead.

Hi Sue!! At least Emma was pink, she could have been uglier!

Julie - Yeah, we were going to give Emma to the chickens, but I named her and all, it would be sad to kill her after that!

Robin - You know how I name things!!! I still find George legs every once in a while in the house...

Barb - TOMORROW!!!!! I can't wait for the big move!
