I have a few baby Bathynomus giganteus (giant Isopods)
It would be fun to have a 3 foot long deep sea Isopod! Put a harness on it and take it for a walk through the park! LOL
Supposedly a zoo in Texas has them alive in an aquarium to see in person. I would love to see them! I want to know how big the babies are. I like their mirrored shades!
I have this orange form of Isopod (Porcellio scaber) to clean my vivariums. They get about 3/4" in size and breed very well which is good because the vampire crabs think they are good to eat whenever they find them! I also have a NOID Isopod called "White Jungle Micropods" which only get about 1/8" or less fully grown. The tiny Jungle Pods are not so showy and go uneaten because they stay mostly in the soil do not get so big and attract attention to themselves! LOL
Isopods of most kinds are the greatest things to have in a vivarium, eating mold, fungus and animal waste, uneaten food, you can keep them in a tank with or without other animals. Many terrarium animals will eat them, I assume the same as they would in the wild eating what they discover or whatever wanders by. Isopods are fun to watch all by themselves they have very busy agendas! LOL
Speaking of "Just add water for Instant Pets" right now is playing the South Park "Sea People" (sea monkies) episode! Gross!
