Armadillidium c.f. pallasii (formerly frontisotre) "Croatian Giant" AFTER SHOW SALE
Out of stock
This is an ad for isopods leftover from our most recent expo. Amount is VERY LIMITED.
The naming of this culture is interesting, to say the least. "Frontisotre" is actually a name for a species that was already idenfied - A. pallasii. The "c.f." denotes that it is not this species, just very similar to it and is as close as experts have identified it.
This is a locale collected from Croatia; in comparision to the other "frontisotre" circulating in collections is is the same length but thicker across the middle.
This is a large species that enjoys rotten wood, calcium and occasional protein. They breed year round prolifically and reach fantastic sizes. They do well in environments similar to A. vulgare.
Frontisotre do well in temperate to semi-arid environments. They may have issues molting in tropical environments, and like to eat soft bodied plants.
