Use these easy-care animals to teach topics such as evolution, adaptation, behavior, and much more. Also recommended for use with AP® Lab 11: Animal Behavior.

Product Families Featuring This Item:

 
Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little disappointing The pill bugs we received were quite small and difficult to see for the purposes of the experiment. Also, the first batch all died with 48 hours of delivery, despite setting up the habitat as directed. The company was very nice about sending a replacement batch free of charge, but these were not any larger, and did not last appreciably longer. Perhaps, it was our fault for not taking proper care, but this purchase did not work out as anticipated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great specimens I used this as a study in environmental factors for my 5th grade science class. They worked great and were easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pill Bugs The bugs came on time and were packaged perfectly. All bugs accounted for. I will order all our science project needs with Carolina from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient for Science Fair My 15 year old son did a Science Fair project on pill bugs and humidity, but had trouble harvesting useable specimens during the winter. We ordered this mixed 25-count pill/sow bug set 143062. Came when desired - bugs were living. Very easy to use and convenient. The experiemet was successful - great product!
