Which do you prefer?
Orange Scaber (left) OR Orange Laevis (right).
Personally I like the left one better because if how it looks; the color of orange, sharp-looking sides, and the contrast between the two types of orange.
I prefer the one on the right. I love the bright color and it reminds me more in shape of the gray garden isopods I’d find all the time as a kid. Also, I think it looks like it’s either going to invite me in for tea and knit me a sweater or assassinate me, and that’s a dichotomy I appreciate.
I love orange isopods… if environment isn’t a factor definitely scaber. Are you looking at these for a particular setup?
Powder orange are an absolute favorite of mine.
We used to breed both Orange Laevis and Orange Scaber. The Scaber were a best seller and the Laevis sold so poorly that we stopped working with them. So, I think in general people like Scaber better.
Laevis. We have the giant orange in some of our vivs and they’re brill. See them a lot! Along with the dairy cows, tropical greys and dwarf whites
Can they live together?
I like them both but if I had to choose, I’d say Orange Scaber
You can have them together. We have tropical and dwarfs in together. The other half has orange and cows. They make some cool hybrid babies!
I have some white dwarf and Grey woodlice but I wasn’t sure if you could mix them or if its like squirrels where grey took over the red.
I don’t ever see mine, well apart from when I dig for eggs (no luck yet)
I’m looking to get some more clean up crew… Was hoping to see if I could find any at a Reptile show, but I don’t think I will be going to one this year
Seems they’ve stopped again! As I was looking at going for the first time too
They could. But eventually possibly one will out breed and then out compete the other.
