Common name - Shiny Isopod "Orange"
Scientific name - Oniscus asellus "Orange"

The listing is for 1x animal, of a beginner-friendly species of isopod (rolypoly/pillbug/woodlice) that is popular for their ease of case. This is a very pretty, flat species that is adorned with many shiny speckles on the top surface of its body.

This is a pedigree called "Orange" originally isolated by Mark Titterton, which has been selectively bred for a mutation where the instead of the typical grey body colour, the isopods are a bright orange.

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