The listing is for 1x animal, of a beginner-friendly species of isopod (rolypoly/pillbug/woodlice) that are hardy and quick to reproduce. They are also one of the best beginner isopod species that are tolerant of a wider variety of conditions.

This is a culture called "New Line", which originates from a new locale in the wild that is separate from the currently established Zebra Isopods in the hobby. Individuals from this distinct population tend to be more vigorous and grow larger than the regular population. They also have an underlying caramel colouration which is the most noticeable on their legs and underside of their bodies.

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