Paragraph 1

If you are of insects, this might be reading. A fossil found on a in England shows that the biggest bug that ever lived was the of a small car. The fossil is of a millipede. This monster could have had hundreds of legs. Although the name "millipede" means "one thousand legs" in Latin, few species have 1,000 feet. There is one that can have 1,300 legs. The fossil hunters in England said what they found is "definitely the biggest bug that ever lived". They said the millipede was around 2.7 metres and weighed over 50kg. This would have been a scary sight. It would need a huge amount of insect to keep it away.

Now go to   Paragraph 2.
