New isopods


Recommended Posts


today I got a new package with Isopods, Porcellio expansus and P. bolivari

I was really happy to finally get these two species. I've got almost 20 of each, so that should be a good start.

Now I hope they will breed well.

Thanks guys!

I love them too, the bolivare are absolutely massive!

But apparently the P. expansus can get even bigger, at least old males. I was told that their uropods alone can reach about 1.5cm in lenght. Also, their colors will get more intense as they age. But I only got smaller ones for not.

Here is one of the P. bolivari males
