Armadillidium maculatum Zebra "Oddball Lottery"
Armadillidium maculatum "Oddball Lottery" is a unique mix! These were bred from oddballs from every maculatum imaginable! It is worthy to note that some of these Isopods can be standard morphs, and some will turn into some crazy things! There are no guarantees what you will get, so please be aware of this on both ends.
These isopods have a hard, calcified body, and are prized for their spots and unique colors. They are quite large as adults, but the younger ones are palatable and are eaten by amphibians, invertebrates, and reptiles. Larger amphibians and reptiles will consume adults as well, but not poison dart frogs. Usually, hobbyists do not keep them with predators, but rather as pets / trades in the isopod hobby. Our isopods are fed Iso-licious Isopod Food 1-2x a week, including our new wet mixes, supplemented with potatoes, squash, carrots, our leaf powder, and a cuttlebone. These isopods enjoy warm temperatures and an occasional misting, but do not do as well in an extremely wet environment. We allow space for a moderate moisture gradient, starting with one side of the enclosure having wet NZ sphagnum moss, the middle being moist and mostly covered with leaf litter and bark, and onto the opposite side being completely dry and covered only with leaf litter. This provides the needed space for Isopods to osmoregulate to remain in homeostasis.
