Armadillidium scaberrimum "sandstone" (formerly A. omblae) AFTER SHOW SALE
Out of stock
This is a culture of isopods packed for our most recent show. They are being offered at a discount so we don't have to unpack them. There are 12 packed per container.
This culture was officially identified as A. scaberrimum rather than the incorrect A. omblae and is a robust, attractive isopod. The backs of the animals are textured with spiny lumps and range from a pleasant beige to a cool grey color.
They should be offered a hefty calcium source, and a humidity gradient. They produce large, although infrequent broods.
Sandstone isopods do well in temperate to semi-arid environments. They may have issues molting in tropical environments, and like to eat soft bodied plants.
If temperatures at arrival destination are ABOVE 80F or BELOW 40F the package will be marked HOLD FOR PICKUP at the closest FedEx facility for the safety of the animals. PLEASE include your phone number at checkout in case the package is marked held. The holding facility may or may not call, so please monitor your tracking number for the package to be available.
