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.   

While all our isopods are eligible to be shipped via our “Flat Rate 2nd Day” FedEx shipping option, I’ve found that under all but the most ideal conditions, 2nd Day shipping is risky.  Going forward, Isopod orders must be shipped via FedEx Overnight shipping to receive a live arrival guarantee.  In addition, having the package held at a FedEx location may also be required, at my discretion, in which case I’ll notify you where the package is being held.  You will need to pickup the package within two hours of arrival unless otherwise arranged.

To keep shipping costs reasonable, I’m offering an add on shipping upgrade. So, here is how to get this cheaper overnight shipping option for your order.  Please follow these directions!  First, add your isopods to the cart, and then make sure that the second day flat rate option is checked, and no other shipping options are checked.  If you have other non isopod items in your cart, you should select the additional shipping option appropriate for that item, or if you need help, contact me. 

Now go back to the isopod listings and select the “FedEx Overnight Shipping Upgrade” option, it should appear at the end of the listings for the isopods, and add it to your cart.  You are all set, you’ll get either standard or priority overnight shipping to your location or the nearest FedEx facility at the low cost of $25 total!  Alternatively send me a message with the items you wish to purchase and I’ll send you back a cost breakdown and a link to make payment! 

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.
