Whimsically black-and-white, this adorable smooth isopod mutant has attracted many new isopod enthusiasts. Suspiciously, this strain is unable to breed with wild caught United States individuals or the “Orange” variety, which suggest it may truly be a separate species from the others. Regardless of its identity, this large isopod is very sturdy, long-lived, and productive and perfect for those wishing to dabble in fancy isopods.
