Newly hatched armadillium vulgare

Cross-post from Arachnoboards, but I figured I'd start a new thread here.

I grabbed some armadillium vulgare a few weeks ago from my campus and I found a female with eggs last night, and they hatched today. I also found some with more pronounced yellow stripes, so I'm going to go back and see if I can breed for that trait. You can see a newly born one in the 2nd and 3rd pic. :D

If anyone else has pics of young isos please post em! I love how small and transparent they are.

Cute! :D I wish you luck with isolating the yellow stripe morph and intensifying it, that should be a fun (and long) project! :)

Yup, baby isopods are adorable. I started a gecko vivarium back in december. Since the P. scaber I added to it were collected in winter, none of them had babies developing. So just recently the females all at once started developing eggs and giving birth and it's absolutely swarming with hundreds of tiny white babies

I agree with you salmon sand which. Mine have just exploded with little white babies. Whenever I lift up their carrot there's always Atleast 20 under it.

Congrats on the babies! You might have some dalmatians in there too, but hard to say for sure until they've hardened. Good luck with your selective breeding projects! :)

It does look like you got Dalmatians in there, they look like P.laevis. I have some pure white P.laevis, hoping to isolate the morph once I have enough individuals.

Thanks for the ID hisserdude. I will definitely not be using these as cleaners heh. New breeding project, isolate the white dalmation gene! Here are all of the individuals I started a new culture with.

Nice! Very cool individuals, seems like white individuals of this species aren't as uncommon as others, seeing as stock I got from CA also had this trait. Looks like you'll be starting out with quite a few "dalmatian" individuals, so you should be able to isolate the morph fairly quickly! :) Let us know how it goes!
