"Ceska" Isopods (Armadillidium versicolor)



The variegated pill isopod (Armadillium versicolor) is a type of isopod native to central Europe. They are known for their colorful blotched pattern, which makes them a striking addition to a bioactive terrarium or for adding to an isopod collection.

As part of a vivarium, A. versicolor contribute by breaking down food waste, feces, and rotting foliage. They do best with access to plenty of calcium, whether through having a piece of cuttlebone available or calcium powder dusted on the soil.
