Centipedes and Millipedes
Centipedes and Millipedes are found in an array of terrestrial habitats from tropical rainforests to deserts. They dwell in soil and leaf litter, under stones and dead wood, and inside logs. Some species can be hazardous to humans because of their bite. Although a bite to an adult human is usually very painful and may cause severe swelling, chills, fever and weakness, it is unlikely to be fatal.
