What name do you call one of these? (CW - image of isopod crustacean)


#1

Because I have only just discovered not everyone calls them a woodlouse


#2

slaters is probably what I’d have first called them as a child


#3

I would call them “woodlice” given that there are three of them, Theodore.


#4

It’s a woodlouse.

If you’d asked me when I was six I’d have said it was a choogy-pig though.

Is this the kind of thing you’re after?

triple sod


#6

Cheesybug


#7

In our neck of the woods we called them ‘Billy-bakers’.


#8

Or cheesybob either is valid


#9

Check the title: “What name do you call one of these?”

Hugh Grants


#12

Yes it is.

#14

My mum calls them “slaters”

So I’m guessing that’s a NE thing.
