Also known as the “dwarf purple”, “Costa Rican purple”, and “jungle micropod”, this tiny species is a highly efficient clean-up crew in humid enclosures and an amazing feeder for tiny arachnids and amphibians. Unlike the dwarf white isopod, these do not burrow; they prefer to hide under bark or other cage décor, making them easier for predators to find!
