Slate Millipede (Comanchelus chihuanus)
Found primarily in the arid regions of Texas and Northern Mexico, this huge slate millipede is also known as the Chihuahuan millipede. I found by this one by sheer accident on a chilly spring morning in the Big Bend area of Western Texas as I was winding my way up toward the Chisos Mountains.
