I dont even know what this is. And i tried to take a bunch of picture of it on the table, but it kept moving around....the best shot turned out to be the one when i let it go back to its home. Oh well

"woodlouse" or "pill bug" it's actually a shrimp like creature that left the oceans millions of years ago and hasn't changed since then.

nice detail on the critter and the cavern he's exploring - need a tiny car or something to throw everyone off on the scale of the pic

Yes we call them Slater Bugs over here, commonly found in most gardens in damp areas.

We call them sow bugs or wood lice.

They seem to be harmless, friendly little creatures.

They are sort of armadillos of the bug world. They curl up too.

Nice photo, I posted some of a similar species some weeks ago. Well done, they are not that easy to catch: moving around all the time, like you said! This photo is very nice, also because it depicts the species in his natural habitat.

That looks like a really tough looking bug and you captured it very well. A little color would have been nice instead of dirt but you can't have everything.

Rolly Pollys!

These are seriously my favorite bugs, when I was little I would collect a bunch of them in containers and make a little enviroment for them. This is such a neat photo!
