Flat-back Tractor Millipede - Polydesmid

Photos of black and white flat-back tractor millipede crawling on jungle floor. This millipede belongs to the Polydesmid invertebrate species and have around 25 legs on one side.

This flat millipede is quicker than the round millipedes but still eats the same foods including rotten wood and dead leaves.

That is amazing, it looks metallic. It also creeps me out a bit, millipedes are freaky.
