RolyPoly Easter

Ever since I can remember I have always been infatuated with the Armadillidiiae, a.k.a. the RolyPoly. And by infatuated, I mean they're the only bug I wasn't grossed out to pick up. This is why when I saw one on Easter I immediately went for it, only to see that my 2 year old niece, who is insanely grossed out by bugs, wanted in on the action too.

My first reaction was to say "stop" and "be careful!" but soon after I realized, he has a shell for a reason, and if he needs protecting he'll let you know. People aren't quite the same, but really they are. We all hide when we need to, but when we're ready we'll open up to the world and show them how great (and sometimes creepy crawl-y) we can be.
