Armadillidium werneri Isopods in Canada

Step into the captivating world of Armadillidium werneri, the illustrious "Greater Clown Isopod," available at Isopod Canada. This remarkable isopod species boasts a striking resemblance to A. klugii while setting itself apart with unique features.

The visual distinction lies in Armadillidium werneri's extraordinary 5 rows of white spots, a striking departure from klugii's 3 rows. These distinct spots contribute to the species' bold appearance, enhanced by a remarkable blend of orange and white coloring. Native to Greece, A. werneri thrives in temperate and semi-arid environments, exhibiting an unmatched resilience that makes it a sought-after addition to isopod enthusiasts' collections.

Creating an optimal habitat for Armadillidium werneri is key to their well-being. While they demonstrate a certain level of tolerance to humidity, it's advisable to provide a dry area within their enclosure. Despite their larger size, Armadillidium werneri remains a docile and laid-back species, often unrolling and casually exploring their surroundings when handled.

These isopods are known to be exceptional guests in well-maintained vivariums, contributing not only to aesthetic appeal but also to the ecosystem's balance. With a penchant for congregating on cork bark, Armadillidium werneri make a significant impact on organic matter breakdown, aiding in the decomposition of various substances, including leaves, wood, and fecal matter.

The "Greater Clown Isopod" species, especially Armadillidium werneri variety, is a testament to nature's intricate beauty and resilience.
