Powder orange isopods are a natural color variation of a widespread isopod called the Plum Woodlouse (Porcellionides pruinosus). They’re rusty-orange with a powdery white “coating” to their color.
Powder orange isopods are prolific and one of the hardiest isopods cultivated in captivity. They make a great clean-up crew for any bio-active enclosure, from arid to tropical.
They can leave the leaf litter layer to consume organic matter slightly above the ground level, making them a decent choice for arboreal set-ups.
Given their larger size, they’re capable of nibbling at soft-skinned pets, like amphibians and small geckos.
