    I wonder how a millipede would do. The more legs the merrier?

    Im no entomologist but in my limited television experience, millipedes generally are smaller and have shorter legs so probably have different strategies.

    Looking at the defining characteristics, millipedes have two legs per segment; that might be why their legs are so much smaller. And apparently millipedes are not carnivores like centipedes!
