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

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

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

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

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?

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

@Elaina_Casoolare come on casseroles, this isn’t a complete thread without your input.

I’d have called them chazwazzers.
