I found one yesterday.
If it is truly a recent shell shed, then why don't we see them more often or at least many in a small area? I found this one and since I've been a fan of Pill Bugs since I was a child, I feel as though I should have seen more than this one, EVER. We know crustaceans can be albino and even be albino only on one half their body, so did we actually both find an albino pill bug? I figured the shell should have seemed soft as a potentially recent shed and didn't think the shell looked soft at all.
