A Bug for Dan

Some eggs laid on the flyscreen, they're on like a hair. No idea of what is responsible.

@John53 its not a bug but something thought to be extinct for over 100 years..

"The spotted-tailed quoll—also known as the tiger quoll—was last seen in South Australia in the 1880s."

I got caught in a rabbit hole looking at these and came across Ant Mimics.
Sometimes I start out looking at insects and somehow link after link, suddenly I'm looking at pictures of ladies in swimsuits and lingerie. Not sure how that happens.

Ant mimics are found in a number of orders. It turns out that ants are tough.

Hey Dan, I was wondering if you could identify this bug for me? I found it in my tub, actually I seem to find at least one or two every other morning in my tub for the last week

Looks like a type of slater to me but that's just a guess.

Just tried to find them on the net, looks like the actual name for what I'm thinking of is Woodlouse. Slater might be an Australian term. And they're crustaceans not insects which is something I didn't know. Anyway it's irrelevant if it's not what I think it is.

That seems to be right, thank you!

It's a roly poly! Terrestrial crustacean.

I see my astute colleague has already named it. Though, I'm not familiar with slater.

Harmless. You can just pitch them outside. They'll find someplace to hangout there.

Must be an Aussie or gardening name.
