A mix of both the "Chocolate" and black variations of the popular Armadillidium maculatum, Zebra isopods. Chocolate Zebra isopods gained instant notoriety for their attractive shades of hot coco to deep cacao stripes, as opposed to the black and white bands of the regular zebra. These isopods, originally native to France, are relatively slow growing and make a great addition to terrariums not only as cleaner crews, but also as a tasty snack!
