Papaya Isopods for sale!

Origins: Asia. Timid species (like many Cubaris). These mid-sized inverts feature a soft pinkish-brown color, sometimes sporting white skirting with their cute faces. These terrestrial crustaceans do the dirty work by cleaning up animal waste and decaying plant matter in your reptile enclosure or vivarium.

HabitatPrefer a high humidity (60-80%) environment overall (70-78°F) while maintaining ventilation. Recommended substrate depth 2-3".

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.

Reproduction: Papayas may be slow to start, but if their habitat conditions are right, they are very prolific breeders.

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.
