The listing is for 1x animal, of a beginner-friendly species of isopod (rolypoly/pillbug/woodlice) that is popular for their ease of case. They are also one of the best beginner isopod species that are tolerant of a wider variety of conditions.

This is a pedigree called "Ghost", which is a line that has been selectively bred for its unique colouration, where its body pigmentation is reduced, giving them a ghostly, peachy colour.

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.
