Common name - Giant Lake Garda Isopod
Scientific name - Armadillidium tirolense "Lake Garda"

The listing is for 1x animal, of a large species of isopod (rolypoly/pillbug/woodlice). This species is new to the UK hobby, and it is well-known for its contrasting black and neon yellow/white markings, and for its humongous size (the original wild stock being 2.4cm in length).

This is a special bloodline originating from a population at a certain location by Lake Garda that reaches a larger size than the other A. tirolense localities available in the hobby. This makes them the largest Armadillidium species currently available in the UK hobby, reaching twice the size of the commonly-kept Zebra Isopods.

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