Here, you can tell us the favorite isopods you keep and show some pictures!
I went to an expo today and got a few things.
Porcellionides pruinosus ‘Oreo Crumble’
They aren’t isopods but I also got a pair of ghost mantises (to breed in the future, if anyone wants I can make a progression thread)
I got these a bit over a month ago but forgot to update this thread.
Porcellionides pruinosus ’ White out’
Yes please! Any more content you can bring @erie-herps, bring it here!
Yeah what he said!!
Yep! We love to see some updates!
Here’s the link to the thread:
Nice! You’ve got some really large ones in there! Dairy Cows?
Oh yes! My fav
Yep, Dairy cows will always be my favorite, and when I get too much for myself to use they are always the first ones to sell!
I haven’t sold any yet… too attached
Yeah It was hard for me to let the first ones go. Then I got overrun with them and I needed them gone. They absolutely rip through any sort of food or leaves you put in their bin. I am constantly replacing leaves almost as often as I mist them down
One thing I noticed is that I admire the isopods more with the black spots over the carapace. This gives them more of a “sharp” look to the design. Some dairy cows’ spots are primarily under the “shell” and look more dull.
This one eating has a really nice distinct pattern.
I’ve noticed ones with yellow, ones with orange, ones with a pinky colour. Then high whites with nearly no spots, striped, brown spots… the variety in them is amazing!
I can see why they’re your fav also. I’m a bit overrun atm so my idea is to separate them into all the different markings, colours etc…
Then I can still keep right?
Yep, haha. That is awesome that you have so many other variations!
I have noticed some of mine have bright orange legs, but everything else is the same. Has anyone else seen that?
You make me want to develop “lines” of them!
Oh I 100% think you should,
I need to go get tubs myself
I was waiting for them to breed more and seems I have more different types than I thought so no idea where I’m storing them all
I’m going to get dairy cows as my next species. Then I’ll selectively breed for a few traits.
You say a few
Ok, maybe a few dozen.
