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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Bugs for AP Biology Animal Behavior Lab The sowbugs were well packed and in great condition. I ordered 200 because I needed large numbers for lab and I moved them to a larger container with wet paper towels & potato. We used them several days later and they were all still alive and perfect for lab.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pill bugs Not an item I would ever buy again. Out of 50 pill bugs only 8 were living and we opened it up the same day we got it to check. In the second bunch (yes we ordered 2 boxes) only 12 were living

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these little guys I have bought these for the past 2 years for AP Biology Lab 11: Animal Behavior Lab. The little bugs are always alive and in "good spirits" when I receive them. There are always a few extra thrown in in case some of them pass away in transit.

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 5 out of 5 by from Bugs Got them quickly and they were all alive even though the weather here was pretty cold

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sow Bugs Review Only lost 1 during the shipping, and the rest were healthy and performed fine for the AP Lab we did.

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.
