Porcellio scaber 'Lava' Isopod is a type of isopod that is well-suited to living in arid and temperate environments, but might struggle to survive in tropical settings. These isopods have a relatively soft exterior which makes them ideal for use as feeders.

They breed at a moderate rate and can often be found hiding underneath a piece of dark bark. The name of these isopods comes from their distinctive coloration. Lava isopods have orange bodies with dark purple patterns. The patterns can vary greatly, with some individuals having more purple than others. 



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.
