Included: 12-15 mixed size Porcellionides pruinosus, the powder orange isopod. Soft, velvety exoskeletons and flashy, quick, bold behaviour make this a very engaging isopod for many purposes.

Available year round unless the weather is below -20. This kit ships on Mondays: in order to be in time for shipping the following Monday, your order must be placed by the previous Wednesday at noon.

The isopods come housed in a shipping container and will need to be rehoused in 1-2 weeks. Additional substrate and housing not included. 

P pruinosus is not very good for handling, so these are not great if you are wanting to interact with them. They do, however, make a great addition to almost any terrarium: being extremely hardy, with a wide diet. They are a medium sized isopod, growing to about 1 CM in length. 

Isopods cannot be released outdoors.

Isopods can be ordered year-round.


We have an "arrive alive" guarantee but we cannot guarantee the well-being of the animals past shipping: once they are in your hands, you must be prepared to care for them. Remember: you are dealing with living animals who will be reliant on you. Nature is not perfect; in the wild, survival rates would naturally be very low in arthropods. In captivity, you should expect a much higher rate of 70%-90% survival. Please incorporate these statistics into your lesson plan, and never assign a single isopod to a single participant, as some of them will not make it. It is always ideal to observe invertebrates as a population.
