What makes roly polies walk?
They have a lot of tiny legs
<quote> It's called a roly-poly. <quote> Actually, it's called a pillbug or, the scientific name, is Armadillidiidae and it's in the family of woodlice. Because they roll into a ball when threatened many have called them roly-polies or potato bugs. However, it's a common mistake as these are not bugs at all but they're actually crustacean much like shrimp. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pillbug http://insects.about.com/od/isopods/a/10-facts-pillbugs.htm
Yes, and it would be normally. ' The question's category by-line suggests "roly-poly" is an American colloquialism for the woodlouse, in which case, a sentence like, "There is a roly-poly ambling across the floor". ' In the UK, roly-poly is a somewhat archaic adjective for being overweight as a person or animal, and also the name of a pudding. So, perhaps, "You'll end up roly-poly if you eat too much roly-poly pudding!"
