Giant Isopods

March 24, 2015 § Leave a comment

I found a little one of these while waiting for the bus this morning. When I was growing up in Arizona, we would see them after it rained, and we would call them roly-polys. I learned today that their proper name is A. vulgare, the common pill bug. Like velvet mites, my early exposure to the little creatures made me more fond of them than otherwise. 🙂
