From Scientists According to a study on Thursday, the world’s first “true” centipede was discovered, which describes a creature that is longer, thinner and 1,306 feet taller than the others.
Animal Living. Myriopods, worm-like organisms, dissociated bodies, commonly referred to as “centipedes”, have not yet been identified above 750.
The record species, with 1,306 legs, is described in the review Scientific report, 60 meters underground, found in a deep well in the mine area
Australia West. Paul Marek, a research professor at the University of Virginia Tech (USA), said that the Greek goddess of the underworld was named “Umilips Persephone” after Hades’ wife.

“This is a remarkable beast!” “
The animal looks like a string about a millimeter wide, but about 10 centimeters long. It has a “conical head with a large antenna and a hook for feeding,” the study says. Eyeless, it is colorless – characteristic of underground animals. “Centipede digs by stretching its elongated body, which makes it thinner to accommodate micro cavities,” explains Paul Marek.
Its many legs propel its body, opening the cracks and crevices in the earth and allowing it to move as it pleases. “This is a remarkable beast!” Andre Nell, entomologist at the CNRS / National Museum of Natural History, answered: In his view, the discovery is promising for biodiversity because Centipede has “re-colonized artificial holes, which is very encouraging”. He says these micro-cavities, often unknown, serve as a breeding ground for new species to be discovered.
Centipede is one of the first air-breathing animals on earth, with study notes and some extinct creatures up to two meters long. They play an important role in the ecosystems in which they live, eating garbage and recycling nutrients. Their babies hatch with only four legs.
