    I'm not an expert but that's a 'rolypoly' or 'pill bug'....... I played with those things all the time as a kid! Memories!!!! Gotta love nostalgia.

    Not a pro here. Call me Jon Snow...... for I know nothing, except what I've experienced.

    Hi,

    Its an isopod, aka roly poly or pill millipede.

    Nothing to worry about.
