The Billipede

Arthur Pleura, the Billipede is the long-suffering many-many-many-many-many legged clerk to The
Registrar. It is the Billipede’s job is to check Colonel Utensil’s Seaweed sheets and ensure that all the animals have arrived correctly on Infinity.

Originally, the Check-In clerk was a prehistoric Spider, but soon his eight legs were not enough to cope with the number of creatures arriving each day, so the Billipede was promoted.

Reason for Extinction:

Multi-coloured Billipede body segments were used by humans to make the first counting abacuses.
