Desert Woodlouse. Woodlice, or Pill Bugs, are crustaceans, But one of them lives in North African and Middle Eastern deserts!
A male and female dig a burrow together to lay their eggs. Then, one goes out foraging for food while the other stays behind to defend the nest.
After a few weeks the youngsters begin foraging for themselves, but they return home each day. It’s several more months before they fly the nest permanently.
I wonder if they’ll become eusocial like ants and termites one day?
