If you turn a woodlouse upside down and look at the tail end you will probably see a pair (sometimes 4) of white patches. These are composed of material which. when damp, allows the animal to absorb atmospheric oxygen. If these dry out the woodlouse dies. Some species, such as the genus Armadillidium, are able to roll up into a ball and so conserve moisture. These can live in drier conditions than those unable to form a ball.
