Millipede madness

Arthropleura is an extinct millipede-like animal that lived about 346-295 million years ago, during the Carboniferous Period. It is the largest known land invertebrate to ever live, and the fossil on display in the Museum, is the largest ever found.

Come along to our free drop-in event and take part in millipede-themed craft activity to celebrate our new giant millipede fossil exhibit. Creepy crawly fun for all the family.
