Pillbug

Armadillidium vulgare

Description:

Unlike members of other woodlouse families, members of this family can roll into a ball. Isopods are omnivores or scavengers feeding on dead or decaying plants or animals. Some may eat live plants.

Habitat:

Isopods breathe with gills, so they are restricted to areas with high humidity, under rocks or logs, in leaf litter or in crevices. Some species are nocturnal.
