Kids' Favorite Summer Bug

One of kids' favorite summer bugs, and certainly one of mine when I was a kid, is the Roly Poly Bug, sometimes called the Pill Bug. They are harmless little bugs because they don't bite nor spread diseases. What kids find most fascinating is that they will curl themselves into a hard little ball when touched.
Roly Poly bugs are crustaceans, and the only crustacean that lives its life entirely on land. They live up to two years, like dark & wet places, and eat rotting vegetation. For more information click here and click here. What did you learn today?
