What are calico isopods?

Similar to calico cats, calico isopods are mottled with black and orange. They're one of many color variations of Porcellio scaber, the common rough woodlouse, also known as the roly-poly.

Common rough woodlice are temperate species. They can subsist in a wide range of living conditions. They do well in lower humidity ranges than most other isopods, making them great candidates for bio-active desert set-ups.

They're not the most prolific isopod you can culture, but they'll do quite well after becoming established under appropriate care.
