The isopods arrived quickly. They are also very hardy. I continued to feed them potato slices and kept them alive over weeks for additional experiments by my students. I recommend the purchase.

The pill bugs I ordered came quickly and were live on arrival. I will definitely order again in the future.

This was handy to have someone collect Isopods for me and my busy schedule. The price seemed a little high for education.

I've purchased the 100 pk twice so far and couldn't beat the price that other sites offer. They have always been shipped in a timely manner and always arrived alive. I would recommend this place over any other source for pill bugs.

Ward's® Live Terrestrial Isopods (Pill Bugs and Sow Bugs)
Specimens Preserved Specimens Preserved Animal Materials
Often mistaken for beetles, these wingless crustaceans live their whole lives on land, feeding on decaying organic matter.

  • Easy to maintain in the laboratory or classroom
  • Do not bite or sting
  • Pill and Sow Bugs are crustaceans
  • Demonstrate differences in defensive behaviors between the two specimens
Pill Bugs (Armadillium vulgare) roll themselves into a ball if agitated.
Sow Bugs (Oniscus asellus) can be identified by their posterior "tail like" appendages, and will play dead when agitated. They are unable to roll into a ball.

Ordering information: These products contain living or perishable materials. Both Pill Bugs and Sow Bugs are easy to maintain in the laboratory or classroom. They prefer dark, damp locations such as under logs, leaves or rocks, and are most active at night. They are detritivores, and feed mostly on decaying organic matter.

Delivery information: Specimens will ship via overnight or 2nd day delivery. Please specify a delivery date during checkout.
