Well of sorts. This is in fact a snake millipede.
Millipedes typically feed on leaf litter and dead wood. They play a crucial role in woodland ecosystems by breaking down vegetable matter to create more soil.
The life span of a millipede is surprisingly long. Some can live for several years, with the oldest recorded millipede being 11 years of age.
There are a few species of millipedes that are referred to as snake millipedes, but I’m not sure exactly which type this one is. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know!
