I am getting a culture of Armadillidium vulgare "St. Lucia" shortly. Has anyone ever tried selectively breeding the different colours of this animal? I understand that there is quite the variation under this locality, but is it possible? I would love to isolate some Jade coloured individuals eventually. I think they are quite beautiful. Does anyone know if the wild type colours are linked to sex? If anyone has and extra tips I would appreciate it. Stay safe guys.
Hello everyone, I'm part of the fossil forum and I saw a fossil that I thought looked like an isopod that needed an identification. After some research, this site turned up and I decided to ask y'all if you could confirm or deny my suspicions. It is from the Mississippian period, slightly before isopod are supposed to have evolved ( although a few say even before that) and it is land deposits, meaning it should be a terrestrial one. I don't know much about isopods so I was hoping you guys had some anatomical expertise In analyzing it. I've sent something like this to two other isopod experts b
