Dalmation Scaber Isopods for sale!


Origins:
 Europe. This timid species have proved to be a good Clean-Up Crew.

Habitat: prefer low to moderate humidity, but are very tolerant of humid conditions which helps if it starts to dry a little bit (68-78°F). Ensure they have their hydration station setup in a corner (moist sphagnum moss). Recommended substrate depth 2-3".

Recommended use: Bearded Dragon enclosures, Bone Cleaning (skulls), feeders (for larger animals).

Food: As with most isopod species their main source of diet should be lots of leaf litter, decaying wood, and calcium supply. This species will readily cannibalize each other if there is not enough protein in their diet (feed protein 2x per week). Supplement with mushrooms, freeze dried veggies, organic veggie scraps.

Reproduction: Fast (Brood size ~10-20)

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