Pillbugs

Pillbug

  • Adult pillbugs can grow up to 3/8 in.
  • When disturbed they are capable or rolling up into a tight ball, allowing their shell-like exterior to protect them.
  • They are almost indistinguishable to the naked eye from their close relative, the pill millipede.
  • The differentiating factor is the number of legs.
  • Pillpugs only have one pair of legs per body segment.
  • Pillbugs have a total off 11 body segments.
