—INVENTORY PENDING—

The smooth/swift isopod (Porcellio laevis) is a type of isopod native to Europe and northwest Africa, although invasive in other parts of the world. The “Dairy Cow” color morph is appropriately named for its white and dark gray blotched pattern. This species can be identified by their wide, flat body and smooth exoskeleton.

As part of a bioactive terrarium, P. scaber contributes by breaking down food waste, feces, and rotting foliage. However, they are considered aggressive, so it’s best not to keep them with smaller isopods or particularly small reptiles/amphibians. They do, however, make good feeders!

Each 12oz deli container comes with 10-12 isopods.

Difficulty: Beginner

Great as always

I love this company. My package came and my mother didn't tell me but luckily all of the isopods were still alive. They are great, just waiting to see if they reproduce!
