The crustaceans among us

Cambridge Day brings us up to speed on roly-poly little pill bugs, which aren't actually bugs but are instead the only crustaceans that live on land (with gills, even).
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
And they have pouches like marsupials for the newly hatched to stay in for their first weeks.
Back in my childhood...
... I loved these little critters. I am sure my love was not reciprocated, as I probably traumatized them.
they aint insects...
but they are still bugs/pests (like spiders).
They're not pests
and spiders aren't either.
They are called potato bugs. Eeka - help me out here!!!
Is there a definition for bug?
And does it really exclude these cute little guys? I mean, they definitely aren't insects, but I thought bugs described all creepy, crawly, land based exoskeleton critters.
And apparently they are Vulcans!
roly-poly should be what we call...
... police riding in a cruiser.
