The listing is for 1x animal, of a gorgeous species of isopod (rolypoly/pillbug/woodlice) native to Northern Italy. This species is rare in the UK hobby, and it is well-known for its glossy body, and a contrasting neon-yellow markings that run along the back of its jet-black body. 

These are CAPTIVE BRED in my collection, with this stock originating from Adige Valley, 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.
