The Candy Isopod, otherwise known as the Greater Clown Isopod (Armadillidium werneri) is an incredibly attractive woodlouse species found in the Mediterranean. Native primarily to Greece this species is relatively easy to care for, though requires a slightly higher ambient temperature than some other European species. It prefers slightly drier environments and should have an area of its terrarium left with lower humidity; in fact they should not be kept an high humidity as it can cause them moulting issues.

This large species makes a great display animal as it noticeably bolder and more active compared to similar isopods. Though their sensitivity to humidity and low tolerance of colder temperatures suits them more to an isopod keeper with moderate level experience rather than a beginner.

Sold in a tub of 10.
