New Insect With 4 Penises And 414 Legs!!

A peculiar new poison-shooting insect has baffled scientists with its extreme defence mechanism - but that's not the only reason why it has tongues wagging. 

The illacme tobini also possesses an impressive 414 legs - and can handily turn four of them into penises. It was discovered in the caves of the Sequoia National Park, part of the Sierra Nevada mountains in Granada, Spain. 

The insect is part of the millipede family and is another species of the illacme penipes, which with 750 legs has the most limbs of all insects.
