Collecting some local tasty morsels food for my spidies and decided to finally try and get these IDd. These are two of the most common local myriapods that I run into when out rock hunting.
I managed to take some horrible pics here...but...

a small milli ..about a couple cm long...




interesting centipede. Long and thin ...about 2 cm or so, but only a mm thick. I wish these were bigger!
This one died from stress I think ...went biserk and stopped moving. :?

don't know about the leafeater but the cent is a geophilomorpha, soil or snail centipede.

little light bodied centipedes are hard to bring back, you need to make sure they don't dehydrate or cook. i usually bring an umbrella with me to shade my bag with. before i did that i had a horrible rate of bringing stuff back alive
