Picture, please! :)

Ah, there's the picture... ;)

That's an isopod or you might call it a woodlouse or a roly-poly. They're generally harmless. They're great in cleaning up by eating all the nasty stuff in a terrarium. I can't imagine it would harm your T unless it's a tiny sling.
You could also just get it outside and let it free. :)

Many species of isopods are also considered as pets, here are some of my zebra isopods:

If you're unsure just take it out. I have a few dwarf white isopods with my more moisture dependent Ts as a clean-up crew, the bigger ones are only in my dart frog vivarium. They're crustaceans and need moisture to survive.
