Pill Bugs

 

Pillbugs grow to be almost 1/2 inch long with many body segments and 7 pairs of legs!!

 

These bugs are related to lobsters and shrimp!!  They even have gills! 

 

Pillbug females lay eggs that they carry in a pouch under their body.  These eggs hatch into baby pillbugs that look just like their Moms.  They stay in her pouch for about 2 months before they go off on their own.

 

Pillbugs stay in the dark under stones or logs during the day and come out to eat at night.  They like to eat dead plants as well as yummy live plants, like cucumbers.

Earthworms

  • Earthworms live in the dirt, even eat it and then push it out their rectums!! 
  •  They push their throat out through their mouths to grab their food ( normally leaves of plants) and then get it wet with saliva. 
  •  They then push it down their esophagus into their crop where it is stored until they are hungry.  The then move it into their gizzard whre the soil that they have eaten is.  
  • The rocks in the soil crush up the leaves.  Then the food goes to their intestine where digestive juices break the food down more.  
  • The food that is needed goes into its bloodstream, while the food that it does not need leaves their body as soil!!
