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. Field-collected pill bugs and sow bugs. With instructions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Order was replaced with ease The first set of these arrived and were mostly dead. There was little activity and they appeared slow and weak. Carolina replaced them with ease and the second set was healthy and active.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from very small These were VERY small this time, some so tiny you could hardy see them. They usually come as mature, full grown adults. They were very hard to use for an experiment that requires visualization of their movements

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 Good Bugs Quality organisms delivered alive in a timely fashion. Served our classroom purpose. Have continued to culture them easily and have even reproduced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied Customer Although I thought I would be able to find these on my own. Reality proved me wrong. I found the best price here and was pleased with the delivery time and quality of specimens. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Easy to grow. I loved the recommendations on how to feed the pill bugs. I also appreciated the description of the difference between the male and female Armadillidiums. Now we know how to identify the females. The pill bugs arrived in great shape and are enjoying their new environment. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool for biology classrooms I ordered the pill bug pack of 50 for a behavior study in my seventh-grade science class. They arrived in great condition and have continued to be hearty through extensive use by middle-schoolers. Some must have come pregnant because I'm already seeing baby pill bugs which is an added bonus. These little guys are a great classroom pet and are easy to take care of.
