 文字稿//Millipede With Over 1,000 Legs Discovered

 What kind of animal or bug has the most legs?
哪一種動物有最多隻腳呢?

Let's see… people have two legs, dogs have four legs, cats also have four
legs.
人類有兩隻腳,狗跟貓有四隻腳。

Cockroaches… ew, I hate cockroaches… they have six legs.
我討厭的蟑螂,有六隻腳。

And spiders have eight legs.
蜘蛛有八隻腳。

But have you heard of a bug that has over one thousand legs? It's true! The
bug that has over one thousand legs is called a millipede.
你聽說過千足蟲嗎?這種蟲類就是馬陸。

There are a lot of different kinds of millipedes, but experts recently found
a new kind of millipede that lives almost sixty meters under the ground. They
found it in Australia.
科學家在澳洲發現,有一種馬陸生活在六十公尺深的地底。

This bug is less than ten centimeters long - that is shorter than the length
of a pencil - but it actually has more than one thousand legs… it has one
thousand and thirty-six legs.
這種馬陸不到十公分長,但一共有一千零三十六隻腳!

That is the highest number of legs anyone has ever found on a millipede.

It also has no eyes. But experts say that's okay because if it lives
underground, it doesn't really need them!
因為住在地底下,沒有眼睛也沒有關係!

How cool is that? I can't imagine having that many legs, I would probably
trip over myself all the time!
