Armadillidium vulgare "Magic Potion" (USA Line)

The dalmatian gene variant of A. vulgare exhibits distinct characteristics. The USA line typically features larger sizes and a more pronounced yellow coloration compared to the Japanese line. However, this variant tends to have a higher proportion of males, leading to slower breeding rates. Additionally, in my experience, they seem to prefer a more humid environment and exhibit a tendency to burrow more than other A. vulgare variants.
