Rated 2 out of 5 by from Missing bugs There was supposed to be 25 and I could find no more than 10. All have died and now I am not sure what to do for my lab. I did buy last year and did have better success.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Small specimens I bought this group of pill bugs for my 3rd-grade class. Their lab had to test different factors - amount of light, type of food, amount of soil moisture - and see which was the factors were most important to support a thriving pill bug community. A majority of the pill bugs that came were very tiny. In fact, it was hard to find them after the first trial. So, the experiment was not conclusive. This was a great disappointment because this lab was a graded district assessment. Additionally, the cost to performance of this particular group of pill bugs wasn't a good deal.
