Porcellio laevis - 'Dairy Cow' isopods can thrive in both arid and temperate environments, and they can also do well in tropical vivarium setups. They have a soft exterior, which makes them suitable as feeder isopods. These isopods breed at an impressive rate and are known to burrow deep into the substrate, making them ideal for larger bioactive enclosures as they clean deep in the lower layers.

This species is very large and active, making it a fan favorite. They are entertaining to watch, which also makes them ideal as pet or showpiece isopods. Dairy Cow isopods are a popular species in the hobby. However, it is important to do some research before keeping any species together, including isopods.

Please carefully read the following information before placing an order for isopods:

We guarantee that each shipment will contain the exact number of isopods you have ordered. Depending on the species, a few extra isopods may be included.  

 Once you receive your isopods, you can introduce them into their new home or bioactive setup. To ensure their safe arrival, we ship our isopods with sphagnum moss and a small food source.  

 Additionally, we include insulation and heating or cooling packs, depending on the temperatures in your area at the time of delivery. We do not charge extra for these packs. When placing an order, please consider the temperatures in your area. 

  We will only ship when temperatures consistently range between 40-90ºF, and we will use proper heating and cooling packs to maintain safe temperatures in the box during transit. However, it is your responsibility to be aware of the temperature when shipping. We only offer a live arrival guarantee for overnight delivery. 

  If temperatures are questionable on either side, we may postpone shipment to ensure that your isopods arrive safely. We will always communicate with you prior to shipping if there are any concerns about temperature. We are committed to ensuring the safe and healthy arrival of your isopods, and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter.
