文字稿//Millipede With Over 1,000 Legs Discovered
What kind of animal or bug has the most legs?
Let's see… people have two legs, dogs have four legs, cats also have four
Cockroaches… ew, I hate cockroaches… they have six legs.
And spiders have eight legs.
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.
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.
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.
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!
How cool is that? I can't imagine having that many legs, I would probably
trip over myself all the time!
