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

Allison Jones Dr. McNelis AP Biology--Class 6 2013 September 4 Introduction The study of animal behavior is ethology. There are two basic categories of animal behavior: learned behavior and innate, or inherited, behavior. Learned behavior is when animals acquire knowledge about their behavior through experience. Unlike learned behaviors, innate behavior exists naturally in animals, meaning that animals are born with some behaviors. In order to find a suitable environment, animals use orientation behaviors. The two types of orientation behaviors are...

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...
