Brief Summary

Read full entry
Harbor slaters, also known as rocky shore isopods, are the largest of the land slaters found in Northwestern Europe. They breath in air, just like species in the garden. They are nocturnal animals, hiding in cracks, splits and under seaweed during the day. You may find them crawling around at night, although they will hide quickly as soon as they detect you. Because they are so fast, they are nicknamed marine cockroaches.
