Common name - Powder Isopod "White Out"
Scientific name - Porcellionides pruinosus "White Out"

The listing is for 1x animal, of a beginner-friendly species of isopod (rolypoly/pillbug/woodlice) that is popularly kept as a terrarium clean-up-crew as it is a very fast breeding species that is tolerant to a wider variety of conditions. This species also has a unique feature whether its body appears to be coated in a powdery substance, giving it a pretty, velvety look.

This is a pedigree called "Albino", which has been selectively bred for their albino mutation. This makes them look white with yellow highlights, and also makes their eyes fully white as well.

These are CAPTIVE BRED, with this stock originating from Cuba. 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.
