This strain of A. maculatum was line bred to have thicker bands of white against dark. Some almost have no dark markings on them! They also exhibit a variety of beautiful patterns as a result of the dark reduction.
Armadillidium maculatum is a really fun isopod native to France. It is commonly known as "zebra isopod" as its natural found appearance is black and white stripes. This species has a really fantastic pattern expression; captive cultures display ranging from almost white to almost black. This isopod breeds year round and is quite fearless, making it a fantastic display animal.
Maculatum do well in temperate to semi-arid environments. They may have issues molting in tropical environments, and like to eat soft bodied plants.
