Porcellio Hoffmannseggi Isopod Culture
~10 adult/sub-adult specimens
Porcellio hoffmannseggi isopods are native to Spain and prefer low humidity environments with lots of air space and ventilation. Due to their size, they should always have a constant source of calcium. These giant isopod pets reach a size of 40mm or more in length. Sexual dimorphism is present in this species, so sexing as adults is easy. Males have much longer uropods than females do. They have medium sized broods, and breed well once established. Mothers will protect their babies for the first 1-2 months of the babies lives.
