Caption: Animated coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a pillbug, or woodlouse (Armadillium vulgare). This isopod crustacean is an omnivore, a scavenger that feeds 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).
