Agabiformius lentus is an isopod originally native to Greece that is now present throughout both Europe, Asia and the Americas. This dwarf species of isopod is similar in care to the Dwarf White Woodlice (Trichorhina tomentosa) a very common species that is incredibly effective in bioactive terraria. The slightly larger Agabiformius lentus is a docile species that, just like the Dwarf Whites, are an excellent cleaner for bioactive enclosures, especially those housing species that can become easily stressed by active custodians. Agabiformius lentus isopods are grey/brown in colour with speckles and tiny tubercles on their back.

This species is fossorial but will also hide under cork bark. This hardy species can tolerate a wide variety of parameters, though if keeping them in a drier setup add a deeper substrate and spray 1/3 of the enclosure to keep it damper, a layer of sphagnum moss on top of the substrate in the area is also worth adding.

Sold in a tub of 10.

Please note that for the health and safety of these animals we will not ship Woodlice in cold weather.
