Welcome!

Yep! :D It freaked me out at first. I thought I had watched a pillbug kill itself, but it turns out it just kept walking, haha.

How interesting! I did not know that! Thanks for the information! That must have been a cool sight!

Welcome!

Lovely fellas-- I have them around my house as well. As they're an isopod, they do also live underwater, and I've seen them straight walk into my pool.
