Giant Isopods

Excellent! Pill bugs the size of your head. ^_^

Giant Isopod
...The generitype Bathynomus giganteus is the largest known species of isopod and is the one most often referred to by the common name "giant isopod". Incredible though it may seem, these are relatives of the very same isopods people call pill bugs, wood lice, and rolly polies.


Ok, bigger than your head, they max out at 18" 3lbs! They remind me of the Garthim from the Dark Crystal (Wikipedia).
