Armadillidium vulgare

These are the common "roly polys" found pretty much everywhere. They are easy to keep, as long as you give them lots of ventilation. They eat dead leaves, dog food, fruits and veggies. The substrate is coconut fiber and Zoo med jungle mix. I keep them moist. They take a while to grow, but can have very large litters, which makes the colony seem to grow quickly. Here are some pictures!

Unusually colored adult.

And here is the cage
This is a hardy species, and it is cool to watch them roll up into balls! Hope you guys enjoy!
