Porcellio laevis 'Dairy Cow' are a hardy species of isopod and produce quickly once established. Dairy Cow Isopods are large, active, and have a neat white and black speckled pattern. They are larger, relatively fast reproducing isopod - many dart frogs will not be able to consume adult laevis, making them a great choice for the vivarium. If you're looking to keep these isopods outside of a vivarium, we'd recommend keeping them on our Isopod Substrate or even better using our Isopod Culturing Kit.
In rare cases, starving isopods may attempt to consume the carapace of freshly molted invertebrates or even gnaw on small or delicate reptiles or amphibians. We strongly recommend providing supplemental food to your clean-up crew in the enclosure. When in doubt, using dwarf species of isopods, such as Dwarf Tropical Whites, may be a safer option.
