Isopod Hobby

Recommended Posts

I am curious when did the isopod hobby start. For some reason I thought it really began and took off over the past 5 yrs. 

What were some of the orginal morphs? 

I assume it all started in the UK?

Someone in the USA wrote a book about the isopod hobby 5 years ago. There is evidence the isopod hobby started in the late 1990's in the United States with a hobbyist who isolated orange Porcellio from Spain and offered them for terrarium keepers regularly in the US arthropod hobby circuit, but there really was no hobby before the 2013 Isopods in Captivity book.
