Rough Woodlouse - Uden, Netherlands At the peak of the hottest summer in 3 centuries, I&#039;m sure this woodlouse (which depends on moist conditions) is holding on to its life. Note how even the moss is dried out, something which I&#039;ve never seen before in this country. That said, it didn&#039;t look particularly troubled or weak. <br />
