Critters with Coins (4)

In the h2g2 Post Bug Special it was suggested that taking photos of bugs alongside coins would be helpful, to give a sense of scale. My first attempt at 'Critters with Coins' involved a 'Daddy Longlegs Spider'.

Here is my third attempt - a woodlouse or pill bug. Coincidentally, I watched a quiz show the day before I found the woodlouse, and learned that it has seven pairs of legs! I don't mind woodlice too much, because they are smaller than a 50 pence piece and they trundle across the floor in a fairly predictable way.
