Armadillidium badium "Castledaccia"
Armadillidium badium "Castledaccia" Isopods in Canada
Hey, have you heard about Armadillidium badium, also known as "Castledaccia" or "Sicily II"? It's a pretty intriguing isopod species found near Castledaccia, a town near Sicily, Italy. These little fellas can grow quite big, giving A. gestroi a run for their money when they reach full size.
Now, let's talk about their looks! "Castledaccia" isopods have got this amazing appearance with deep, vibrant yellow stripes that are bordered by dark stripes. Trust me, it's a sight to behold - just like bumblebees with their striking colors!
What's really cool about them is their reproductive rate. These isopods are quite the family planners, you know? They start producing offspring early on and as they age, their broods get even larger. They've got it all figured out!
To keep them happy and healthy, it's best to set up their home with both moist and dry areas. Oh, and don't forget to add a little hide for them to climb on during molting - it'll make things a lot easier for these critters.
All in all, "Castledaccia" isopods are a stunning and fascinating bunch. If you ever get a chance to see them, you won't be disappointed!
