Porcellio scaber "piebald"

Out of stock
Product Details

The gene producing piebald is a recessive gene causing a lack of pigment in sections of the animal. This can be combined with other genes affecting color and pattern for some interesting visual affects! A frustrating aspect of piebald is that it can have a range of expression - from very low expression where the animal appears almost entirely gray except a leg or antennae, to almost entirely white. We pull the very high and very low expressions to encourage our cultures to only produce high contrast animals.
