What is it?

Our photographers have been busy exploring the intricacies of the Missouri outdoors. See if you can guess this month’s natural wonder. The answer is revealed below.

Pillbug

On the back cover and right are pillbugs by Noppadol Paothong. They are also known as sow bugs, isopodes or roly-polies due to the way they roll into a defensive ball. Pillbugs breathe with gills, so they live in moist areas such as under rocks or logs or in leaf litter. They mostly feed on decaying plants and animals. To learn more about bugs in Missouri, purchase Show-Me Bugs for $7.95 plus shipping and handling, and sales tax (where applicable).
