Common name - Miyako Island Isopod
Scientific name - Cubaris sp. "Miyako"

The listing is for 1x animal, of a beginner-friendly species of isopod (rolypoly/pillbug/woodlice) that is popular for its ease of care, and its shiny body. This species is found on a small, tropical, limestone island off the coast of South Japan.

Cubaris sp. "Miyako" is the perfect choice as a starting species for keepers that want to get into keeping more advanced Cubaris species later on, such as Rubber Duckies and Lemon Blues.

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