Armadillidium vulgare 'USA Magic Potion'

10 count


Armadillidium vulgare are referred to as the common pill bug but there is nothing common about these guys. These isopods can reach quite a large size when fully mature but are slow to reproduce. A very hardy species Armadillidium vulgare can survive in many different enclosure types. Preferring higher humidity these pods don’t require as much ventilation as other Armadillidium species.

Armadillidium vulgare should be given lots of leaf litter and wood to consume. Vegetables like carrot, squash and cucumber may be provided. They also appreciate small amounts of protein; this is most easily achieved with high quality fish food or dried fish/insects. A calcium source should also be provided (eggshell, calcium supplements, cuttlebone, etc.).

Another fantastic option is Repashy Bug Burger or Morning Wood. Using these as a food source contains all the important vitamins, minerals, proteins, and cellulose isopods crave. But don’t skimp on the leaf litter.
