Big Black and Red Millipede

I haven't been in the mood to blog recently, but I suppose that I should get something on the books for May.  

May be I'll throw this millipede out there. 

On Wednesday I was at Algonkian Regional Park in Loudoun County, Virginia.  These millipedes were all over the place in the wooded part of the park that I walked through.  I probably saw ten live ones, and another ten dead ones.  And they were gigantic.  Well, okay, maybe not big enough to eat a car, but they were three or four inches long.  

I'm thinking that they were Narceus americanus or something related.
