@tadaubs submitted: Are these two different species, or different ages of the same? Oahu, Hawaii
Different species! The darker one that rolled into a ball is a pill woodlouse in Armadillidium. The other is a different type of woodlouse that’s not able to roll up like that, although I’m not positive on species. Maybe Porcellio or Porcellionides.

Armadillidium klugii “Montenegro” – 10/$60 or 15/$80 (juvenile)
One of the most beautiful species of isopods, this species is non-aggressive and can be used as part of a clean up crew. They are also beautiful enough to admire on their own. Keep them with access to both dry and humid areas.
Porcellionides pruinosus “Orange" – 15/$10 or 25/$15 or 100/$30 (mixed sizes)
This is a non-aggressive soft bodied species that makes an ideal clean up crew isopod, and they can even be used as feeders. They are extremely prolific and easy to keep, accepting a wide range of conditions. Perfect for beginners!
Porcellio dubosqui troglophila – 10/$60 (juveniles)
These isopods are extremely variable in color and pattern. The males and females are sexually dimorphic, with males tending to be more colorful. Males also develop longer tails. This species is larger than the previous two, and has a rather prehistoric elongated and serrated shape to them. Keep them dry with access to a humid area. Porcellio species tend not to make great clean up crew species as they can be a bit aggressive towards small animals like geckos, and would best be appreciated in a dedicated habitat.
CBB Scolopendra mutilans “red leg” - $70
She is beautiful, but it turns out centipedes are not really my thing so I’m letting her go to someone who would appreciate her more. Sex is actually unknown, and if I recall she is just over a year old. The color on her legs is still coming in, but will get more vibrant with age. This very interesting species is communal and could be housed with similar sized specimens of the same species. Be warned, she is venomous and is not to be handled freely. You must be at least 18 to purchase her.
Please email me at alexa(dot)shamshoian(at)gmail.com! I accept paypal, and I can ship next week. Shipping is an additional $12.
