    PAID (cekeys $6) Giant Canyon Isopods (Porcellio dilatatus)

    Up for auction is a starter colony of 20 mixed size "Giant Canyon" isopods.


    Not my photos, found randomly online.

    Why keep isopods?
    * They make great feeders for small amphibians/reptiles, insect/arachnid pets . . . and carnivorous plants!
    * They can be used as "clean up crews" for many larger arachnids and reptile/amphibian tanks.
    * They make great pets and are educational for kids!

    Keeping is easy, here is a quick overview:
    A 5 gallon container or aquarium easily houses a colony. They need a moist bedding of coconut 'core' or other moisture retaining substrate. Give them places to hide under, like cork bark and other pieces of wood. They mostly eat hardwood leaves but need supplemental feedings, such as pieces of fish food, fruits and veggies. I keep mine at room temp with no supplemental lighting (they often hide from light). This species likes to burrow and will often dig down about 3" deep.

    Shipping is $12 for the USA.

    PM with any questions!

    Opening Bid $5
