Margo the Giant African Millipede visits Goldfield

How wonderful to launch Science Week with a visit from Margo the Giant African Millipede. Margo is a cold blooded invertebrate and can live for up to 10 years. She has approximately 198 legs and likes to eat food that is starting to decay. Margo has cleaning mites that live on her, they keep her clean and eat all of her waste (they are harmless to humans but you should always wash your hands after handling her). Margo's scientific name is 'Archispirostreptus gigas'.
