Description

The Desert Millipede (Orthoporus ornatus) is a North American millipede species that is found in the US states of Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas, and as far south as the Mexican state of San Luis Potosi. It lives in the deep, damp soil of the desert ecosystem, as it protects the millipede from any harmful biotic or abiotic events. The Desert Millipede is mostly nocturnal, and it spends most of its time in self-dug burrows. The main source of its food is bacteria, and it will feed on dead plant material and tissues of dead shrubs.
