Zebra Isopods are large, active, and have a neat white and black striped pattern, similar to a Zebra (go figure!). They are a larger, relatively slow reproducing isopod – many dart frogs will not be able to consume adult maculatum, making them a great choice for the vivarium.
If you’re looking to keep these isopods outside of a vivarium, we’d recommend keeping them on our Isopod Substrate, or even better using our Isopod Culturing Kit. Josh’s Frogs MilliMix substrate is also a fantastic option.
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.
