ABSTRACT Pill bugs live in an outside environment where they are able to get the necessary amount of energy from organic matter. This environment is where water and organic matter is plentiful. In there natural habitat, pill bugs are found in dark, damp places. Living in moist places is important for pill bugs so they can take in enough water, and if water is not available, they group together to prevent water loss. Pill bugs most often live in dark places because they have a negative photo taxis. Darker places also tend to be cooler and damper. Each experiment connected to how the pill bugs would behave in a certain environment. We were able to test these experiments in a laboratory way to see if the natural environments were also true. If pill bugs are given a light and dark environment, then they will prefer the dark environment. If pill bugs were put in a warm or cold environment, they will prefer the cooler temperature. If pill bugs were in a dry or moist are, they woul...

Pill Bug Lab Report

Pill Bugs Turn Alternation Lab Report Bio Lab 111 Nov. 15, 2012 Pill bugs are said to have some sort of turn alternation built in there cognitive functions, which causes them to take a zig-zag route rather than going along in a straight line for a long distance (Ono Tomohiro & Takagi Yuika, 2006). Distance does not play a factor in the pill bugs making turn alternation even if it is a forced turn, pill bugs will still make a zig-zag motion (Kupfermann, 1966). The zig-zag motion shows that pill bugs don’t have the ability to make two consecutive right turns. ...

Pill Bug Lab

Introduction The main part of my experiment was to see which environment the pill bugs prefer. Some environmental factors that might determine where pill bugs live are moist, light, temperature, humidity, and predators. I chose to use light vs. dark and cold vs. hot. This will help me determine if the pill bugs would rather live in light or dark and if they would like to live in the cold or dark. Hypothesis If it is hot and light then the pill bugs will want to go to the cold and dark areas. Procedure/Methods You will need tape, pill bugs, lamp, cloth, four cont...

Juan Meza Animal Lab Finished

Juan Meza Ms. Johnson A.P. Biology, Per 1 November 5, 2014 Animal Behavior Lab Objective: The objective of this lab was to observe the behavior of pill bugs in different environments. If the pill bugs were exposed to hydrochloric acid, then they will stay where the hydrochloric acid is. Materials/Methods: Materials involved in the lab were; 2 filter papers, 10 pill bugs, a behavior tray, masking tape, hydrochloric acid and a timer. For part C, my group put a few drops into the behavioral tray section labeled, “A”. We then recorded how many pill bugs were in...
