Not my photo, found randomly online.


These are one of the true GEMS of the isopod world! Adorable Black and White little Pandas, they are one of my favorite for their cuteness! They are from the Cubaris genus and have the adorable "duck bill" that has Reddit (and other social media) blowing up! A group of 10, Cubaris sp. Panda King, have been selling for around $100.00!

Why keep Isopods?
* They make great pets and are educational.
* They can be used as BEAUTIFUL "clean up crews" for many larger arachnids, reptile, amphibian tanks.
* Isopods make great feeders for small amphibians, reptiles, insect, and arachnid pets . . . and carnivorous plants! BUT, being so rare (and expensive, and cute), you may not want to feed them off!

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).

Shipping is $12 for the USA.

PM with any questions!

Opening Bid $20 (That's a STEAL!)
