Porcellio scaber "Lava" Isopods In Canada

Introducing Isopod Canada's remarkable Porcellio scaber "Lava" morph! These isopods showcase a captivating bkue-black body adorned with streaks and lines of red, making them one of the coolest scaber morphs. Native to Europe, they possess a hard, calcified body, ensuring their resilience and durability.

At Isopod Canada, we provide the best care for our isopods, feeding them varies diets and cuttlebone supplements. Thriving in warm temperatures and occasional misting, they prefer an environment that is not overly wet.

Create an extensive moisture gradient to cater to the isopods' osmoregulation needs and maintain homeostasis. The enclosure features a moist NZ sphagnum moss on one side, a mostly dry area covered with leaf litter and bark in the middle, and a bone-dry section covered only with leaf litter on the opposite side.

As semi-arid species, proper ventilation is essential for their optimal health. Providing a well-balanced habitat ensures the well-being and thriving of these fascinating isopods. At Isopod Canada, we take pride in caring for these unique creatures and offering enthusiasts a chance to explore the wonders of the "Lava" morph.
