  • A hardy species of isopod and produce very quickly once established.
  • Oreo Isopods make a great clean up crew in any tropical bioactive setup or naturalistic vivarium and aren't likely to bother inhabitants .
  • They are larger and more active and easily seen than dwarf whites.
  • This species is soft bodied so insectivorous animals may enjoy the occasional isopod snack without fear of choking.
  • A super fast isopod species, these can often be found zooming across the floor of your enclosure.

Still not sure if Porcellionides pruinosus 'Oreo Crumble' from Josh's Frogs is the right pet for you? Read the reviews below and see what other customers are saying!

In rare cases, starving isopods may attempt to consume the carapace of freshly molted invertebrates or even gnaw on small or delicate reptiles or amphibians. We strongly recommend providing supplemental food to your clean up crew in the enclosure, such as Josh's Frogs CUC Cuisine. When in doubt, using dwarf species of isopods, such as Dwarf Tropical Whites, may be a safer option.
