Tiny Wildlife – Pill Bugs, Sow Bugs, and Wood Lice

Record #:
Isopods are animals with seven pairs of legs, have a body divided into three parts, and display a variety of shapes and colors. One can roll-up into a complete ball when disturbed. They are not insects, but belong to a group of animals called Crustacea. Over a dozen species reside in North Carolina. Shelley describes several of them.
