Pill Millipede..

Many years back I came across this creature on tekdi.. But never tried to find its name.. In our zoology lab, we tried to open up the creature by various means, but failed! This picture is shot at fort Purandar, and this time I was determined to search out its name, and found that its called as Pill Millipede.. it feeds on litter in forest and turns into a PILL on touched.. the defense mechanism is truly amazing! Mechanism if extended to human beings, even we roll ourselves into a shell in unfavorable conditions or are ignorant to unknown things…Just as I was, to find out that THIS BEAUTIFUL CREATURE IS CALLED PILL MILLIPEDE, for 5 long years…
