Question

Compare and contrast the body plans and feeding habits of millipedes and centipedes.

Solution

Verified

Centipedes have flat, segmented bodies that have 1 pair of legs attached to each segment. Centipedes inject venom, kill the prey, and eat it. On the other hand, millipedes have round, segmented bodies that have about 2-3 pairs of legs attached to each segment. Moreover, millipedes only eat the dead, decaying plants. However, both species live in moist areas since their bodies are not water-proof.
