Giant Orange Woodlice Pre-pack


Giant Orange Woodlice (Porcellio sp.) are one of the larger species of isopod commonly used as terrarium custodians or 'clean-up crew' and live and breed well in bio-active set- ups. As adults they may attain a length of up to 18mm long. Giant Orange Woodlice are also useful as a livefood for many reptiles and amphibians and have the advantage of a high calcium content due to their calcarious exo-skeleton. If they are to be used as food they are best served up in a smooth-sided dish in much the same way as mealworms or calci- worms. To thrive and become established in the terrarium they need to be in a constantly damp and humid microclimate which normally means that they hide away for much of the time under branches rocks or within the substrate. They are supplied in tubs as a starter culture of various sizes. 5ml of woodlice in each tub.
