Common name - Giant Magic Potion Isopod
Scientific name - Armadillidium granulatum "Magic Potion"

The listing is for 1x animal, of a new species of Magic Potion Isopods (rolypoly/pillbug/woodlice) in the hobby, derived from Armadillidium granulatum. Compared to the commonly kept A. vulgare "Magic Potion", these A. granulatum "Magic Potion" grow bigger (almost 1.5x the size) and reproduce faster, making these a better option for many.

This is a pedigree called "Magic Potion", which has been selectively bred for a mutation that reduces the level of the isopod's body pigments. This results in pretty, milky-white bodies that are dotted with yellow and dark spots. Juveniles are purely white to start off with, but they develop the multi-coloured spotting as they mature.

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