The listing is for 1x animal, of a beginner-friendly species of isopod (rolypoly/pillbug/woodlice). This species is well-known for their contrasting bright yellow and deep purple banding.

This is a pedigree called "Gold" isolated by me, which has been selectively bred for a mutation that causes a high-yellow expression that takes over most of the body.

These are CAPTIVE BRED in my collection, with this stock originating from Casteldaccia, Italy. When a group is purchased, the isopods sent will be an assorted mixture of ages and sizes, to ensure a good start to a breeding colony.

The isopods feed on a variety of forest materials such as decaying wood and leaf litter. Additional supplements such as calcium (limestone/cuttlefish bone) and fish food should be offered as part of their balanced diet.
