Ky isopod collecting super find!

Recommended Posts

My collection today yielded these two in a creek bed under a rock. Orange!!! I assume this is not too common in the wild?

Nice, both are Armadillidium nasatum BTW. :) Orange A.nasatum are a lot more common than say, orange A.vulgare, but they are still very rare in the wild, nice find! :D

I believe I heard it's recessive, I don't know though to be honest.
