Those spots! We all love those spots. Dalmatians are a fun species of isopod to have in your farm or vivarium. These charismatic critters are so fun to watch with their curious little attitudes. They are typically more shy than other species of isopods. Carry them in your pocket habitat, take them to school, take them to work, they will be as snug as a bug... in your pocket. These require delicate handling while outside their habitat. This species do not curl into a ball when scared, they play dead.
Females will typically give birth to 1-2 clutches of 20-30 babies in last summer through the fall.
Dalmatians can grow to about 1/2 inch long and live 3-5 years. They become sexually mature and start producing babies around 6-8 months old. Yours will be approximately 6-8 months old when shipped.
Dalmatians prefer 60-70% humidity and temperatures between 50-75degrees F but can tolerate temperatures as low as 40 degrees. They will eat just about anything organic including most vegetables, grains, and fish food. Do not overfeed or the uneaten food will attract fruit flys.
Just like all isopods/rolies, Dalmatians get along well with other species of isopods/rolies.
Shipping is a flat $10 per order no matter how many isopods or species ordered. Orders totaling $35 or more include free standard shipping.
