Giant Canyon Isopods for sale!

It is believed the P. dilatatus originated in Europe but are now native to North America as well. They are a large nocturnal species that tend to hide in the moist dark areas coming out at night to devour and clean. 

Habitat: Prefers room-temp, medium humidity with lots of ventilation. Ensure they have their hydration station setup in a corner (moist sphagnum moss). Recommended substrate depth 3-4". We have noticed they prefer cork bark for hideouts.

Recommended use: Bearded Dragon enclosures, 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. Supplement with organic fresh veggies & protein 2x weekly.

Reproduction: Fast (Brood size ~20-30)

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