Giant Isopods

After spending many days of my childhood looking under rocks for what my family and I called “Roley-Poley’s”, I was quite fascinated to learn that the Giant Deep-sea Isopod is essentially the exact same animal, except that it’s the size of a cat.  Leave it to a strange Japanese TV show to show us that, yes, Giant Isopods are the size of cats.

Not only are Giant Isopods the relatives of tiny armored rock dwellers and the size of cats, they also love Doritos.

This picture is why I love the Internet.  Here’s another glorious Giant Isopod (which are carnivorous, by the way).
