Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Pillbug, crustacean, isopod (Armadillidium vulgare). Isopods are omnivores or scavengers feeding on dead or decaying plants or animals. Some may eat live plants. Isopods breathe with gills, so they are restricted to areas with high humidity, under rocks or logs, in leaf litter or in crevices. When disturbed they can roll in to balls to protect themselves (thus the nickname rollie pollie). Magnification x12 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
