Oniscus asellus

These are one of the larger species of isopods, and the adults can live a few years. They eat dead leaves, dog food, fruits and veggies. The substrate is coconut fiber and Zoo med jungle mix. I keep them moist. They have been breeding like bunnies for me, though some people report having problems with breeding this species. I started with only a dozen, and I now have well over 70 of them! Here are some pictures (not the best pics, they don't like to stay still!).

The cage
They are good for clean up crews, and are pretty hardy. I hope you guys enjoy!
