Porcellio scaber Calico  (10)

Porcellio scaber Calico (10)

Porcellio scaber is another cosmopolitan species of isopods, originating in Europe but now found all over the world.  Like the laevis species, there are multiple different color forms of this species.  This species makes a good clean up crew species, but P. scaber might be better left to the gecko tank, as they can be a bit meat hungry.  Mostly this is not an issue but I've heard tales of these nibbling on dart frogs on rare occasions, so, since there are so many excellent clean up crew species out there, why not choose one of the other species for your dart frogs!  

This form is highly variable, and they can be an interesting selective breeding project. 

This offering is for 10 mixed size specimens. 

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.
