#1-Sow Bugs

Sow Bugs

Sow bugs are my favorite “insects,” mainly because they are not insects. They are actually crustaceans, like lobster and shrimp. Here’s what they look like, just in case you don’t know what a sow bug is.

Sow bug is the name I learned, but in science we learned there lots of other names for the same non-insect: roly-poly, pill bug, woodlouse, etc. If you have other names or know something really interesting about them, please comment below.

I did a report on sow bugs. Here it is.

Comments from my Readers & Friends

  1. Cheesie I have a question for ya for homework I have to adopt a macro invertebrate but I don’t know the life cycle of a pillbug or Sowbug


    • I don’t remember what their life cycle is, but I did look it up when I wrote about them, so I know there is a lot of info online. Good luck.

  2. Idk. I call sow bugs roly poly and doodle bugs. (my mom calls them that too. She’s from Texas.)

  3. I like to collect rolly pollies. I have a vacuum catcher that allows me to catch them. We just finished your first book. My mom got it from her school…you signed it for us! I really liked your book. It was totally awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Once when the first time I saw a sow bug, I thought it was a rock because it was in a rough ball shape so I picked it up and it came out its shell and I got so scared, I almost threw it! Total not lie[of course I lied a little bit]!
