Bio-geekery: The Giant Isopods

I had no idea this group even existed until today, but here they are!

The Giant Isopods!

Here's a photo I took of some small, terrestrial isopods (you know them as pillbugs):

Neat pic. We called them rolly pollies growing up.

I love those little bugs. I grew up in a log cabin (not sure if that actually makes a difference) and they were everywhere.

...I'm squee-ing over insects. I disgust myself sometimes.

I always heard them called potato bugs growing up. I loved playing with them. :)
