Porcellio echinatus

Porcellio echinatus is a very well breeding and hardy isopod with a bumpy appearance. They typically have a brownish-gray color. They do well in a variety of environments, but I keep mine with the substrate about 50% moist and 50% dry.

Skill level: EASY

Reproduction rate: FAST

Humidity: Low-Medium

Food: Main source of food should be decaying leaf litter and wood. Porcellio echinatus are also very fond of a consistent source of protein.
