Panda king isopods are a cute and utilitarian entity. Despite the cupidity over Cubaris and Nesodillo due to their perceive difficulty and scarcity, this is a very easy species with care identical to Cubaris murina. Due to their gregarious nature, fecundity, and vigor, I now affectionately refer to my colony as “the rats”.  Like other southeast Asian isopods, their origins are obfuscated; some reportedly claim caves in Vietnam, while others suggest somewhere in Thailand. Their hardiness and ease of culture suggests they’re less trogolodytic than other related entities, and resting surfaces of both poor and good quality are utilized efficiently.
