The Shocking Pink Dragon Millipede

No, I'm not making it up--not the name, not the creature.

There really is a shocking pink, cyanide-laced millipede living in Thailand, first cataloged in May 2007, and recently listed by the new species selection committee of the International Institute for Species Exploration (IISE) at University of Arizona as one of the top ten new finds for the year.

Knowing that there is such a creature just made my day a lot brighter.

Oh, and when they say it is pink, they really mean pink. Take a look at the pictures.

*Wanders off, happily muttering the words "shocking pink dragon millipede."
