Cherry bug, as it’s fondly known, is a native millipede which, unexpectedly, brings delight to many people. When shaken, it releases a beguiling scent of fresh cherries or almonds. Actually, the odor is benzaldehyde, no doubt to provide some kind of protection from enemies. (There have been mixed reports of bad reactions, too.) Though heavily armored with plates, millipedes also curl up to protect themselves. This is one of the flatter millipede species, an herbivore who mainly feeds on decaying plant matter. With two legs per body segment, millipedes are slow, gliding movers, making them easy to catch if you’re so inclined.
