Dairy Cow Isopods for sale!


Origins:
P. laevis are known to originate from North Africa (though first discovered in Southern Europe). They are a larger species and incredibly hardy. These herds are great at processing organic waste quickly and are the go-to species for many in the bioactive community. 

Habitat: Prefer a warm and humid environment with lots of cross-draft ventilation.

Recommended use: Monitor enclosures, feeders (for larger animals).

Food: As with most isopod species their main source of diet should be lots of leaf litter and decaying wood. Supplement with some protein and watch the herd attack! We noticed they do not prefer the calcium carbonate (limestone) powder like other isopods but enjoy the powderized eggshells and cuttlebone offerings (and lots of it)! Cucumbers, Carrots, Minnows, and more…

Reproduction: Easy & quick to breed. You will have a herd of Dairy Cows in no time!!


Restrictions: Due to state permitting requirements, we are not allowed to ship these isopods to Louisiana.

Additional Information

  • Isopods are captive bred.
  • Do not release them into the wild (per USDA APHIS)
  • Isopods will be various sizes.

Many isopod distributors offer starter cultures of specific counts (5, 6, 8, 10 counts, etc.). We have found that some clients want 1 isopod while others prefer 20+. We have made the decision to sell isopods on a per price basis to assist with your custom-built starter cultures.

Isopod listings are priced for 1 isopod.

Tiered Discounts are unlocked as you add more.
