Porcellio hoffmannseggi Giant Isopods (10)

This is one of the largest, if not the largest, isopod species available. Lengths up to around 2 inches are seen, although they vary.  Our colony here has some that seem to "only" reach around 1.25 inches, along with quite a few that get up to the max size. 

Originating in Spain, Porcellio hoffmannseggi prefer it on the drier side, and ventilation is mandatory for them. Hoffmanseggi also like it warmer, as is the case with most Spanish isopod species.  While they seem fairly hardy, they are a little tricky...their requirement of lots of ventilation and fairly dry conditions, but enough moisture to keep them happy, make them a bit of a balancing act!  However, if you keep a corner of the enclosure moist and keep them between 75 and 85 and they will generally grow quickly, and reproduce easily.  

This offer is for 10 juvenile isopods.   

Our Isopods are eligible for our FedEx 2day Flat Rate shipping!  We charge $9 for this service, and you can add other isopods to the box.  Once you've added the third item the shipping jumps to $13 but after that you can add as many isopods, springtails or eligible plants as you like.  

Please keep in mind that depending on weather conditions you may need to have your isopods held for pickup at a local FedEx location, or have your order shipped via overnight service.  We may contact you and suggest one of these options if we feel that your shipment is not able to be shipped safely with your selected form of shipping.  While the cart defaults to the flat rate shipping, you can change this in the check out process.  

Live arrival guarantee-  Isopods and Plants are guaranteed to arrive alive and in good condition if temps along shipping route and at your location are between 40 and 80 degrees.  If temps are going to be outside of these parameters, especially at your location on the day of delivery, we highly recommend having the package held for pickup at your local FedEx station.  Either input this address as the "ship to" address, or ask and we will use your home address to find the nearest appropriate FedEx location.  

In the event of an issue please contact us as soon as possible.  Replacement is the sole remedy for live arrival issues, shipping for replacement orders is the responsibility of the buyer.
