The Asian giant millipede has the same width more or less throughout the length of its body. It is a long cylindrical rammer or bulldozer. Millipedes can be found around the world in caves, mountains anddeserts though almost all members of Spirobolida live in the tropics as Asian giant millipedes prefer a hot and humid environment. Their many legs give them traction, and which allows them to bulldoze through soil.
